Lost Without Limitations

Stefan Stagmeister was at Hallmark today. I couldn't be happier with how it turned out either (well maybe a little, but i won't go into it because it's not really relevant). SO, he came and won me over immediately with this Austrian accent. Just as Chip Kidd, Stephan grounded me on the design world outside of Hallmark and gave me perspective. Stephan's latest project was involving a diary that he kept. In the diary were statements like, "Keeping a diary supports personal developement." He used these to create his book Things I Have Learned In My Life So Far. The book is filled with innovative and often traditional typographic solutions for his "things he learned". So many of the things he mentions i struggle with myself... it was pretty much the perfect time for him to come. The "book" is actually a collection of books each with interchangeable covers for the die-cut in the sleeve. It's pretty super... i must say. Ok, enough of that. I just think Mr Stagmeister is pretty swell if you couldn't tell. ..

I was pretty homesick at the end of this weekend. It's slightly better now, but there was so many things about being home that i miss. I miss my friends back home a lot... i have to say though, if it wasn't for the awesome new friends i have met out here in Kansas City, i would probably be insane...

"Tonight I lack the strength to even move..."
