Day 21: Civil War Battles
Memorial Day, originally Decoration Day, was first celebrated after the Civil War to commemorate the lives of lost soldiers. Here’s a little history on the bloodiest war in American history. And of course, let’s remember all soldiers we’ve lost in all wars today. 

Why why why would you color the Confederacy blue.

Time on Jonathan Ive:

To watch him with his workmates in the holy of holies, Apple’s design lab, or on a night out is to observe a very rare esprit de corps. They love their boss, and he loves them. What the competitors don’t seem to understand is you cannot get people this smart to work this hard just for money.

You can’t say “Gray is the best neutral for (X).” That’s like saying, “Between numerals 1 through 10, I think 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, & 9 are my favorites.”

Steven Heller (co-founder of my program at SVA) gives a brief video overview of Design in Graphic Design History.

Reason for Pursuing Graduate Studies

He wants to tone it down. Pity.

Because seriously, how baller would it be to get in, even after having submitted this version?

I think it’s funny that, in applying for a design program, I’ve been asked to write an essay. If words were my strength, I’d be selling Jane Eyre forgeries as lost works or I’d be crafting a very articulate refutation to every work Shepard Fairey has ever made. Because I think his explanations are a crock of shit.

Instead I prefer design, because someone once told me that Rosa Parks’ husband was the one who got her involved with the NAACP, that his actions helped spur a movement, and that nobody is really sure what made him want to get involved in the first place. Maybe someone at church told him about the NAACP. Maybe he saw a poster and the clever use of photography styles and typography made him think, My wife should do something about this.

It unintentionally strengthens the case for essays. Doesn’t it?
