Writing

I've written for a variety of publications about design, culture, and criticism, including Design Observer, Eye on Design, and for the last fifteen years, my own blog.

Since July 2020, I've been a contributing editor for AIGA Eye on Design.

Books

I'm currently editing a forthcoming book about the history of the Communication Design program at Parsons School of Design called 1, 10, 100 Years: Form, Typography, and Interaction at Parsons, to be published Summer 2021 by Oro Editions.

In 2018, I was the managing editor and designer for Culture is Not Always Popular, an anthology of writing from the first fifteen years of Design Observer. Buy the book here.
