Information graphics and chocolate--two of my favorite things combined into one delicious object. The above image is from Mary & Matt. The images below are from 5.5 Designers in France from their 2008 Chocolat Factory collection.
This month has been all about checking off some major goals.
No. 1: I'm actually posting on this blog again.
No. 2: The Craft Inc. Business Planner is *almost* done! Yes, this follow-up planner to Craft Inc. will have more advice (with worksheets!) for indie craft and design businesses. This is the first book I've both written and designed--and I've enjoyed the process because the design plays with business info graphics. (My love for info graphics is totally nerdy, I know.) I'm actually using my PDF copy of the planner right now to help me put together some plans for my business focusing especially on marketing and store outreach. (I so need to do that right now.) You'll be able to get your hands on a copy soon enough as it comes out in early Fall 2009 and I'm guessing it should be available for pre-order this summer.
No. 3: I'm finally getting to the bottom of the 6-pound bag of pretzels from Costco we bought back in October. I'm so sick of eating pretzels. Next up: that 2-pound tub of mayo.
