May was an incredibly busy month for me both at Alibi and Jackson-Dawson. Here are a few things that I’ve been working on.
Also the crew and I at Jackson-Dawson have started a new blog, Cure for Common Marketing. It should be exciting to see the way a traditional advertising agency takes on a blog.

I’m all for looking at other designers for inspiration in my own work, but I always try and take an “idea” from another designer…never the actual design.
I received a comment on my wildfire blog and naturally I wanted to check out who was nice enough to take the time. The second I saw the design I said, “that aint dan.” Dan Cederholm, a designer that I have tremendous respect for and consistently research his code has an outstanding portfolio. Naturally other people tend to steal his work and try to pass it off as their own. One day I spent an hour on Flickr reading an arugument about a company that blatantly stole Dan’s logo, but that’s a different story.
