Some time has passed from my latest post. I must admit I needed a break after finishing my graduate thesis and studies. The holidays came as the perfect space for peace, relaxation and some personal family time. It came as a surprise to discover that CertifyD had remained busy without my involvement. After a great full-length article and review on IMPRINT by Ellen Shapiro, things kept moving along. I received many direct emails, messages and feedback during the holiday break. Designers from the USA, Europe, Latin America and even a fellow designer from Nigeria shared their input and personal experiences with clients, peers and the industry in general. The topic of certification, as I had found out during my thesis research, is alive and universal.
A forum started in the AIGA LinkedIn forum by designer Sal Randazzo kept the dialogue going, and the vivid responses did not hold anything back. Not surprisingly, opinions where as varied and polarizing as before. The energy and passion that every person spoke with was refreshing and humbling. I wish this conversation to grow and would love to hear your opinion: http://tinyurl.com/b6rezqd
