Churchill Downs, the world’s most legendary racetrack, has conducted Thoroughbred racing and presented America’s greatest race, the Kentucky Derby, continuously since 1875.

An Event Apart, 2012 San Francisco: A Review

I spent last Monday November 12, 2012 at the sold out An Event Apart (AEA) conference at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. This was my first time at AEA.

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

Not so. Even if it doesn’t carry a ©, it’s probably still protected by copyright. But, stuff still... CONTINUE READING
