I have some really exciting news to share with everyone! Wired.com has launched a design blog, Wired Design, and I have been asked to write for it! Needless to say, I’m pretty excited. And there are some big fish in that pond (Caterina Fake, Christopher Jobson, Chris Anderson, etc.) that make this little fish proud to be writing alongside them.
So head on over to Wired Design and start reading!
I just started a CMYBacon Flickr group! This will serve as a place for CMYB readers to share photos of the awesome work that they do or neat things they come across in the world. I’ll be hand-picking things from the pool to be featured on CMYBacon. I would love it if lots of people start sharing their work here, then I can do a weekly roundup of all the best things! So head over to Flickr and join the group!
I’ve written about Iowa-based snarky t-shirt company, RAYGUN before on CMYBacon. In fact I own any number of their shirts. Well, they’ve done it again: They managed to come up with another topical tee so awesome that I just couldn’t resist posting it. Best part of this, is that I actually did find it on Pinterest. Keep up the good work, RAYGUN!

Cheese or Font is a funny little game that my friend Amy tipped me off to. The premise is simple: You’re given a name and you have to decide whether it’s a type of cheese or a font. Try it out. It’s pretty entertaining.
I have some exciting news to share: As of yesterday, I am the newest (the first, actually) regular contributor at ManMade. If you’re not familiar with ManMade, I highly recommend you check it out. Not just because I’ll be writing there, but because it’s an awesome blog.
ManMade was created by Chris Gardner, who is also the Editor in Chief of Curbly, as an “opportunity to explore the emerging independent craft movement through the lens of the postmodern male.” The site features original how-to projects, videos and design inspiration. But don’t let the manly description scare you off, ladies. ManMade is a great blog that everyone can enjoy.
Finally, if you’re so inclined, you can read the post that Chris wrote yesterday, introducing me to the ManMade community.
