When you’re 50, it represents 1/50. Each year, our perception of time compresses, so the years roll by, seemingly faster and faster, until the next thing you know, AARP is filling up your mailbox with membership invitations and you find yourself considering which Medicare plan is...

But I’m a fan of a good conference and a designer friend of mine raved about the event a year or... CONTINUE READING
