I believe many of you will identify with the people in these articles as I did.

This series helps see “me” in a greater context and helped me understand my frustrations with the definition of work and careers today.

Start with this articleBye Bye Busytown” which sets you up for his series about independent life and work.

Then, read this, “The Leading Edge: Why Independents are an early warning system of the economy”.

The next in the series will publish on July 22nd (Tuesday this week).

Quiroga, a serif typeface, is on sale for approximately 11 more days for only $19. It is a steal so I bought a license for myself :-)

Designed by Fernando Diaz of TipoType, I’ve had my eye on it for oh, a week of two?

Why I love it and why I bought it:

  • It's warm, approachable
  • Reads well at small sizes
  • Sports some wonderful design details

It's a high-quality typeface designed by an award-winning type design studio.

So, for those moments, I've made a copy of these three reminders from, “Dealing with Your Creative Expectatons” by Kate Leonard.
