    The StarCraft Business Model

    No, this isn’t a post about logging into battle.net while you’re on the clock. Nor is it a post that outlines the strategies that will finally undermine those Koreans that you can’t seem to defeat. No, this is about what I believe much of corporate America is missing.

    My Design Journal

    Keeping a Record If the inconsistency of this blog is any indication, I’ve always been bad at keeping a journal. I’ve never really felt passionate or excited about doing it. When Day One came along, a journal application built by Paul Mayne for Mac and iOS, I thought it was an awesome app. It made […]

    iPhone Blueprints

    For the last year, I have been juggling a project that involves something I have never done before — I wrote a book.

I believe that this movement […]

During this time, I have had the opportunity to work closely with Zach Holmquist, an extremely talented developer. As some of you might know, over a year ago we began creating iOS apps together.

    A is for Apple, and V for Vendetta

    The Attitude of a Brand If you were to ask ten designers for the difference between branding and identity, you’d get ten different answers. Regardless, I’m going to give you my own definition.

    The Handier Handyman

    I Can’t help but make a comment about these two companies. Both of them are actively pushing their brand through tv spots, both of them are very well known names, and both of them offer the exact same services and products. And at first glance, their commercials might even seem similar. However, there is a […]
