How Simple Ratios Dictate Your Preferences

In this lecture I attempt to draw connections through many different concepts and disciplines in a detailed breakdown of how everything we subjectively like as a culture can be objectively measured and broken down into numbers. This is the first part of a multi-part series which attempts to explain why we like what we like, and what designers can do with that knowledge. Part 2 aims to be about why everything in part 1 is true, and Part 3 will focus on examples for how to implement these findings in your designs.

Financially Planning For A Career in Graphic Design

In this lecture I attempt to frame up a potential path for your financial future in graphic design, and what that might look like in terms of actual salary figures, dealing with debt, and planning for retirement. All of the information in this talk applies generally to any career, but the examples specifically in use regard a career in design so you can learn from example what you could expect as you start down this path. Apologies for any repetition or stammering, I had given this lecture 2 times in a row prior to recording this all in 1 night, and my brain and voice were a bit fried and I wobble in-and-out-of-frame a lot.

How Technology Changed Humanity In My Lifetime

In this lecture I detail how the speed of technology really began to ramp out of control from the moment I was born until today. This developmental overlap with my own life gives me a somewhat unique perspective on how to interact with technology and the role it plays in my everyday life. Parallels are drawn between my physical growth and the speed of transistor improvements with modern CPUs. This is a companion lecture to "How technology Acceleration Will Affect The Visual Arts".
