About me

(Picture of a tiny cow hanging from the beak of a giant chicken)
“Design is not about making things up. Correct design is a portrayal of reality, a form clearly and exactly expressing a function. Understand the reality, and you’ll understand how to design for it.”

Who’s behind this stupid site?

I am a student studying inclusive design at OCAD (Ontario College of Art and Design) in Toronto, Canada, technically officially graduated since the end of October. Unless something really bizarre happens, my convocation will be June next year (2015).

If you are interested in my thesis (which technically is not really a thesis but an “MRP,” even though no one seems to know the difference), you can find it on my thesis documentation site.

Me according to what I read

Magazines that I should have finished reading yesterday: Pica nº 1 and nº 2, plus a huge backlog of Transactions on Professional Communication

Books that I should have finished reading yesterday: Emigre 70, Typographers on Type, Radioisotopes and the Age of The Earth : Volume II, and the stack of books I borrowed from the library

My reading backlog

This is of course just a continuation of the previous list. But these ones really stick out, because they came from way back when I took B1 French:

Le Petit Nicolas / Sempé
Le racisme expliqué à ma fille / Tahar Ben Jelloun
Tous les matins je me lève / Jean-Paul Dubois
Une vie française
Je voudrais que quelqu’un m’attende quelque part / Anna Gavalda

I should probably give up on updating this list. There are even articles from my first year foundations course that I haven’t yet read.

Where else to find me

I don’t think this is really a blog, but some think it is, so maybe it’s close enough. But in any case feel free to leave your comments here.
