This past weekend, along with my husband Rob, I had the chance to attend a portion of The Carl Dair Typography Workshops in Winnipeg, hosted by GDC Manitoba. World-renowned typographer Rod McDonald, and Patrick Griffin of Canada Type were on hand to facilitate the workshop and share some of their extensive typographic knowledge. The weekend (October 17-19, 2014) consisted of a free lecture on Friday night, and then a full two-day workshop on Saturday and Sunday which was part lecture and part expert critique.

I was one of 1200 people sharing a lovely prairie-inspired meal last evening on the Esplanade Riel. GDC Manitoba sponsored two of the 150 tables that made up the full length of Winnipeg’s Table for 1200. What a perfectly lovely way to spend a summer evening… visiting with other members of GDC Manitoba and having a few hours to soak in the best of Winnipeg.

Yesterday I bid a fond goodbye to the WordPress theme that I was using until now. I still loved its clean design, but it wasn’t responsive and I was looking for some new features. However I did want to give a shout out to Organic Themes. From my perspective, their Portfolio Theme was built well and whenever I had an issue, they were helpful in resolving it. Thank you!

I/WE/YOU samples, Karenia Niedzwiecki

In December 2012, while in the midst of my 365two project, I thumbnailed a product idea in my sketchbook. It was somewhat inspired by Dan A’Vard’s SPICES affirmations (see Week 7 of my 365two project), but evolved from there. Essentially I wanted to offer a series of personalized prints where individuals or families could list the traits that define them, their new baby, a good friend, etc. I saw it as a chance for people to take some time to reflect through ‘I am…’, ‘We are…’ or ‘You are…’ statements.

It’s Friday night and I designed a notepad

Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m a bit of an organizational nut. Not in the sense that I’m organized 100% of the time, but definitely in the sense that I get overly-excited about things that are meant for organizing. At work, I have a few friends who are equally excited about such things… to the point, that we sometimes email each other to compare how much we’re geeking out about our new organizational system of the week, special project or funky tabs meant for sticking on things. Oh yes…
