Spent today with Damini a first time author. This is us organizing the selected images for each chapter of the book. Photo editing is incredibly time consuming.

Working on a new book design with many eccentricities.
The decision making in designing books is creating structure based on information elements. The reader is then aware of a kind of information based on size, position and visual style. We've taken a couple snapshots of two of the more sexy elements, part and chapter openers.

While we continue to work on the communication plan and brand audit there are immediate needs. Events take place and contributors need to be thanked. New students must be welcomed.

This printed piece tells the stories of chad students and maked design projects visable.
We look forward to posting a case study in our project section of stellarvisions.com
An iPhone Oggl pic of my desk in the afternoon. It has my favorite little poison dart frog on the Mac Mini. A nice moment in the afternoon sun. It's wonderful to capture a little still life around the studio.
