And Now For A Brief Message

A Brief Message: The new site by Khoi and Liz

This week, two of my heroes, Khoi Vinh and Liz Danzico launched a cool new website this week titled A Brief Message.

From the website:

A Brief Message features design opinions expressed in short form. Somewhere between critiques and manifestos, between wordy and skimpy, Brief Messages are viewpoints on design in the real world. They’re pithy, provocative and short — 200 words or less.

Steve Heller wrote the first article, and I had the honor of writing the second. Felix Sockwell did this amazing illustration to accompany the piece:
