If you loath social media and find it mind numbing contact me I can set it up for you. Social media is a great tool today to reach people. Don’t let it pass you by.
I am starting this blog as my professional website. I hope to connect with people interested in Information Design and anything relating to it. I’d like to also connect with those in the literary world looking to cross into Information Design.
I am a reader, writer and book lover at heart. I would really love to be a part of something that incorporates Technology, Design, Literature and Writing.
