here we go

so I just got back from the city of new york where my design class and I met with the very entertaining and intelligent brian collins, who has recently founded his own branding firm. he talked to us about the importance of storytelling in design, citing his own favorite story, pinocchio.

he not only told us of his love for this story, but showed us his obsession with posters and books he has collected and toys he had commissioned to help him understand and visualize it through the eyes of others. he said as designers, we should all be keeping a blog to help us learn to tell stories to an audience. then he presented us all with a little friend and had us promise to start a blog and send it to him. there is my first story.
