I'm so grateful to all of you for bringing interesting and meaningful design conversations to the table. All of your perspectives gave RockPaperInk an authentic voice in the design community.
They were great sports when I asked them all for mug shots to promote the site before it launched.
Mug shots, aside, the regular columns you can still expect to see in the coming year, include:
- Poster of the Week, John Foster

- Ask Design Bitch, Terry Lee Stone
- Love Thy Logo, Bill Gardner
- Design Change, Kevin Budelmann and Yang Kim

We've also added some exciting new columns and topics of interest to the site.
- Higher Learning by Mary Scott, will address design education and how things like social media and digital communications are changing the learning landscape of graphic design.
- Plat du Jour by Yann Legendre: From the streets of Paris, Yann will bring us his insights into French life and culture through design and art. His observations and inspirations will provide us a virtual, eclectic tour of his hometown.
- Undercovers by Timothy O'Donnell will focus on the changing tide in the music industry and what it means to designers.
- Playing With Type by Lara McCormick, says it all. She will have creative type exercises that you can try out for yourself. Go on ... it's fun to play!
- Jason Tselentis is back with a new column called Nexus, which explores the relationship between design and technology and what it means for all of us.
- Design Law Literacy by Frank Martinez will delve into legal issues that face designers such as copyright and intellectual property laws.
To kick off the weekends right, we're also introducing Friday Feast which will feature random contributions from designers and artists including favorite recipes, best places to visit, studio workspaces, etc. In fact, if you want to get in on the action, please send your submissions to me at email@example.com.
