I’m missing the big Gallery 305K grand opening on Knowlton Street tonight, and it breaks my heart. But I have a good excuse.
I’m blogging from Syracuse this weekend, posting on www.snd.org, playing color commentator for the judging of a major competition: The World’s Best-Designed Newspaper. Papers from all over the world vie for the title, but only one — or even five or six, depending on how the judges feel — can claim the distinction.
Blogging is a good way to help your members feel engaged in what could otherwise feel strange — a bunch of judges huddled in a hotel picking over entries.
And it’s been a fun escape for me, too. The campus is beautiful and the countryside between Bridgeport and Syracuse is not to be missed. And considering these are designers, the company has been swell.
