Design Meets Writing

thoughts on design, writing, and everything in between


Welcome to Design Meets Writing, a daily blog dedicated to sharing commentary and criticism on visual communication.

Design and writing are critical tools for making change happen, and I believe that anyone can learn to communicate more effectively with them. These core beliefs have led me to teach writing at Cornell University and create graphic design learning materials for Adobe Create and LinkedIn Learning. Currently, I serve on the Editorial Team at Design Observer, and develop content at Seth Godin Productions.

I hope that Design Meets Writing will delight, inform, and inspire you. But even more, I hope it will empower you to see opportunities for designing a better world through more effective communication. Like the perspective from a pelican’s mouth (my first post).

Thanks for being here.
