Why I am a designer Written on February 10, 2012, by fuzzdecay.
So my previous post about where the members of the e/n scene ended up ties in quite closely to my career. When I first got on the internet, I briefly hung out on forums and perused awful late 90s band webpages before deciding that I wanted some of that sweet website action. I ended up […]
The way out is through Written on February 2, 2012, by fuzzdecay.
Nice to know I didn’t even make it a month into my whole “I’m going to update once a week” thing. Not to make excuses, but it was purely because of my frantic completion of my sketchbook for the sketchbook project. It was due out Jan 31st, and I (just barely) made it. I was […]
So, my new job… Written on June 13, 2011, by fuzzdecay.
I may have made reference to this earlier — I certainly have if you read my ramblings on twitter — I quit my job back in March. Long story very, very briefly: it had finally met and surpassed my bullshit threshold, which pushed me into an incredibly ballsy (given the economic climate) snap decision. I’m […]
Windowbox Gardening Written on April 25, 2011, by fuzzdecay.
This is a post full of bad pictures that I snapped at night. Update post coming shortly, since the plants have kind of exploded since I took these pictures. A month or so ago, Tim and I built a window box. I’d been waiting with baited breath for our new windows to be installed so […]
Font finder Written on August 30, 2010, by fuzzdecay.
So I’m generally not one for infographics (I find the trend extremely overplayed at this point). However, I printed this one out because I found the way to get to comic sans hilarious. I hung it in my office at work, and it’s garnered a lot of attention. We had a group of students come […]
The other reason I haven’t been updating much Written on August 12, 2010, by fuzzdecay.
As some as you might know, for the past year or so i’ve been up to my tits in wedding work. As in, i’m getting married and my designerly pride will not allow me to hire vendors. For anything. I have written copy for, designed, printed and assembled all of the printed collateral (save the […]
Coming up for air Written on April 8, 2010, by fuzzdecay.
It’s been a crazy couple of months. Work picked up pretty significantly. I’ve been scrambling with my freelance clients and at my day job. Just when it started slowing down, I got a call that my aunt died. This just pushed me behind again. I feel like I’m clawing my way to the surface just […]
One of the great things about working in a design firm is that the work is pretty seasonal. It’s busy like hell at the beginning and end of the year, and there’s pretty much nothing going on in the spring/summer, unless you’re lucky like I am and have a catalog that’s released 4 times a […]
Belated Halloween shenanigans Written on November 13, 2009, by fuzzdecay.
Halloween is a huge holiday for me, but November is notoriously busy because of people needing shit designed for the holidays, so I’m never really timely about posting about it. However, due to a Crape Myrtle tree’s roots growing into our plumbing system and the subsequent fix that is going to require a wall being […]
The office moved. Written on October 7, 2009, by fuzzdecay.
The office moved last week. We’ve gone from a dark little cave to a bright, echo-y hall of douchebaggery. I never thought I would miss working in the cave that completely blocked all means of cellular communication. I am one of three designers that did not get an office. This is still a step up […]
