New Criterion Website!

Have you checked it out yet? It's super-fun. Trailers, video clips, full movies to watch... it's worth spending some time with.

My personal favorite part is the Jason Polan welcome video on the front page. (Or, since they'll have to put something else on the front page eventually, archived here.) Click the "full screen" option in the lower right corner of the video... it's worth watching big! I got to help out a bit with the production of that video, and it was really fun to spend some time in the parts of the company I don't normally work in. So, thanks, Jason, Ryan, Chris, Curtis, and everyone else who helped make that happen!

Campaign design

As a little post-script to the election, check out the interview with Sol Sender, designer of the Obama "O", in the NY times from a few days ago. Always nice to see good design getting some media attention...

Know hope (updated)

Between the stoop sale and those I've mailed out since, there's about 40 of you out there with those super-limited edition Obama t-shirt transfers... I'd love to see what you've all done with them! Here's an update from Dominic (and his ENORMOUS sign!):
Thanks for sending the cool print and it is proudly worn to all weekend events. We were putting up the last set of blitz signs (the attached pics are from the lot next to the WAL-MART / Hell). In case you are wondering or want to throw it in the caption, I do happen to be a Western PA resident that does have guns and religion but I also have the hope for the future that Obama will help bring us. Hope is my single issue here; hope for jobs, progress, fairness, and a deer in every pot (it is hunting season so the camo hat did come out...its a habit).
Thanks, Dominic! Now let's all go out and vote!!

EDIT: One more photo, from Amy of South Carolina, just after results came in last night:
