Some stuff from October 2008’s Fast Company

October 10, 2008

I couldn’t bring myself to take a picture of the cover, it makes me feel awkward and embaressed in the same way I do when I see or hear Sarah Palin talk. Hard to look at, but impossible to look away either. lke a horrible car accident. Go track it down and take a look for yourself. Anyway, there were a couple of other things inside I thought worth pointing out…

This page is so cool, it’s sick. I LOVE this and I’m going to copy it at the very first opportunity I get. I realize it’s nothing particularly special really, but damn I just think it’s kick-ass! Low budget, easy to execute solutions are always killer. Ok, that’s not true at all, but in this case, it is.

Fast Company article on communication through images

April 1, 2008

I really liked this short piece in the front of the April ’08 Fast Company on corporations attempts to disseminate motivational corporate policies and business goals to a large, diverse staff.

Perfect front-of-book content, short, interesting and worth further study by the reader outside of the magazine.
