Personal White Space

We dropped our daughter off at college last week. And although it wasn’t quite as wrenching as that freshmen-year parting, saying goodbye to your sophomore isn’t all that much easier. Between her piles of furniture in the garage, her eclectic assortment of food cluttering up the fridge, and her “stuff” all over the house, a lot of space has suddenly opened up around here. And there’s also that empty feeling any parent experiences at such times.

I know from experience that it will take a little time to fill that emotional void. But the roomy fridge? The spacious garage? The tidy house? I’m already loving that stuff. They say that nature abhors a vacuum, but sometimes it’s important to push back and hang on to a bit of space.

Vote For Milton Glaser!

As a graphic designer, artist, and influencer of culture, Milton Glaser has nothing left to prove. At 86 years of age, he can look back on an incredibly prolific career and an inventive and elemental body of work. From his iconic I Heart NY logo through countless now-familiar posters, album packages and corporate identities, Glaser is one of the true icons of American graphic design.

A big believer in the role of great design in making the world a better place, Glaser’s work has always put social considerations ahead of the commercial. No surprise then that he jumped at the chance to contribute when the AIGA put out the call for ideas for a 2016 get-out-the-vote poster. True to form, Glaser simultaneously created a great design and made an important statement with his “To Vote Is To Exist” poster.

    “When it was time to do our television show, Karen Cronin and I had already done a lot of CD packaging and books and side projects together, so I knew that the set for the TV show was just a matter of turning the wheel in yet one more direction. We had one conversation, and I knew Cronin Creative had it covered. I’m spoiled.” – Marty Stuart
