In preparation for a return, companies are investing in new resources to support a hybrid remote / in-office workforce, with 56% increasing technology budgets and 34% planning to speed their digital transformation as a result of COVID-19.</p> <p>The Xerox Future of Work Survey, conducted by the independent research firm Vanson Bourne, polled 600 IT decision makers including senior C-level professionals from the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Germany and France, whose organizations have at least 500 employees. Respondents reported challenges caused by the sudden transition to remote work, with 72% citing they were not fully prepared from a technology perspective. In addition to technology (29%), the biggest pain points during the required work from home period were communication breakdown across teams/employees (26%) and maintaining focus (25%).</p> <p>&ldquo;While there is no doubt the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we work, our research found that over time many companies plan to have most employees back in an office environment. This could be for a variety of reasons, including communication, speed of decision-making and talent development,&rdquo; said Steve Bandrowczak, Xerox president and chief operations officer. &ldquo;At the same time, the sudden shutdown and ongoing hybrid work environment has exposed technology gaps that require new or additional investment in the coming months.&rdquo;</p> <p>Key survey findings and Xerox takeaways include:</p> <ol> <li><strong>Businesses plan to return most employees to the office, though expanded remote work policies are here to stay.</strong><br /> Prior to work from home requirements being imposed, 33% of respondents said network/data security and privacy was their biggest concern with a remote workforce; 24% cited employee productivity followed by 16% citing technology infrastructure. These concerns, coupled with the belief held by 95% of respondents that in-person communication is important for personal development and assessing talent, indicate widespread remote work will not replace more traditional workspaces.<br /> <br /> However, now that businesses are more comfortable with remote work, attitudes and policies of C-suite leaders and IT decision makers are shifting. Among the countries polled, the U.S. is the most likely to have an increase in confidence in remote working (86%), followed by the U.K. (80%), Germany (80%), Canada (77%), and France (75%). Furthermore, 58% plan to change their work from home policy within the next year, highlighting the need for companies to support a hybrid workforce.<br /> <br /> <strong>Our takeaway:</strong> Employees may not be going back to the office all at once &mdash; or even in the same capacity as before &mdash; but the need for organizations to support a hybrid workforce is here for the foreseeable future.<br /> &nbsp;</li> <li value="2"><strong>Sudden stay-at-home orders quickly revealed technology gaps.</strong><br /> The rapid transition to remote work was difficult for most businesses, with only 28% saying they were fully prepared and 29% citing technology as their biggest pain point. Among the specific countries polled, France was the least likely to be fully prepared for the sudden transition to remote work, while the U.S. was the most likely to be fully prepared. With regards to technology specifically, respondents said their top challenges were remote IT support (35%), inadequate workflow solutions (27%), lack of communications and collaboration tools (22%) and lack of cloud-based solutions (10%). 85% of business leaders also missed the accessibility and ease of use of their office printers, with U.S. respondents missing them the most (93%) followed by Germany (92%) and France (91%).<br /> <br /> <strong>Our takeaway</strong>: To mitigate against future disruptions, such as the rapid transition to remote work resulting from COVID-19, companies will look to invest in new technologies and seek added capability from existing tools to accelerate their processes digital transformation.<br /> &nbsp;</li> <li value="3"><strong>Technology purchasing priorities are shifting to better support employees.</strong><br /> As a result of technology gaps uncovered by having a mostly remote workforce, 70% of IT decision makers globally are reevaluating their budget spend, with companies increasing investment in remote technology resources (55%) or a hybrid of remote and in-office resources (40%). The pandemic also has businesses prioritizing investments in cloud-based software (65%), remote IT (63%) support and collaboration software (52%).<br /> <br /> Hardware such as laptops and printers were another important consideration, especially for companies based in France, with 22% of respondents citing it as the most important need when it comes to technology, productivity and their overall work experience.<br /> <br /> <strong>Our Takeaway</strong>: COVID-19 is feeding digital transformation plans and companies are placing a renewed focus on meeting employees&rsquo; needs with both hardware and software.</li> </ol> <p>For more information, visit <a href="http://www.xerox.com/MakeNowWork">www.Xerox.com/MakeNowWork</a>.</p> <p><strong>Methodology</strong><br /> The survey of 600 respondents located in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Germany and France was conducted by independent research firm Vanson Bourne in May 2020.

I am especially leery of formulae that in any way use design as a tool for strategic promises. So when I picked up the book <a href="https://www.amazon.com/VisuaLeadership-Leveraging-Visual-Thinking-Leadership/dp/1642933376"><i>Visua</i><em>Leadership: Leveraging the Power of Visual Thinking in Leadership and in Life</em></a> by Todd Cherches, CEO of leadership consulting firm BigBlueGumball, I figured my reservations (or bias) would be validated. I was wrong. I may not accept all of Cherches&#8217; ideas, but I was struck by his intelligence, logic and wit, and by how he blends familiar aspects of popular culture and leadership.</p> <p>Cherches founded <a href="http://www.bigbluegumball.com/about-bbg/">BigBlueGumball</a> with his brother Steve, with a goal of helping organizations and their human resources &#8220;turn ideas into actions.&#8221; They invoke a &#8220;patented learning methodology whose foundation lies is these three key words: <em>Educate</em>, <em>Engage</em>, and <em>Excite</em>!&#8221; I recently met Cherches and asked him more about the book and his&nbsp;<a href="https://www.ted.com/talks/todd_cherches_the_power_of_visual_thinking">TEDx Talk,</a> &#8220;The Power of Visual Thinking.&#8221;&nbsp;</p> <p><center><br /> <iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/WmF5A6zZj0E" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></center><strong><em>VisuaLeadership </em>is at once timely and timeless. For millennia power resided not in the word but in the visual. Of course, the invention of the printing press changed all that. Not only was the word power, those who &#8220;spoke the word&#8221; gained the power. How do you distinguish, if at all, from the 15-century word and the 21st-century visual?<br /> </strong>Ultimately it comes down to one word: <em>communication</em>. Whether one communicates visually, auditorily, through reading/writing, or kinesthetically (i.e., through movement)—the four of these methods are commonly referred to collectively as “VARK”—it’s about getting ideas out of your head and into the heads of others so that they can “see” what you are saying. Just as one must be “literate” in order to comprehend the written word, in the 21st century those who are “visually literate” will be best equipped and enabled to leverage the power of visuals—in all forms—to capture the hearts and minds of others.</p> <p><strong>You have a section entitled &#8220;Leading With … Visuals.&#8221; What is the significance here? Are you saying that those who can draw their thoughts are in a more powerful position vis a vis getting ideas across than those who can simply state them?<br /> </strong>Just as the classic saying goes, “he (or she) who wields the pen, wields the power,” leaders who can think and communicate visually have a distinct competitive advantage over those who can’t … or don’t. The most common word that comes up when discussing leadership tends to be <em>vision</em>. And, by vision, in the context of leadership, we are referring to having an idealized picture of the future in one’s “mind’s eye” that is different from and better than the current reality. So, for a leader, step one is formulating that vision; step two is communicating that vision to others in a clear and compelling way so as to inspire others to not only follow you, but to want to work with you and for you to help turn that vision into a new reality. So, yes, the ability to draw one’s thoughts is a powerful way of getting them out there into the world so that others can “see” what you’re thinking and saying. But so is the ability to use other mediums, including photography, art, dance, poetry, theater and any other form of creative language that will enable you to translate your ideas into actions to produce change.</p> <p><strong>How do you propose that leaders conscript visuals into their armies? Does this imply that designers have a greater role in corporate structure than they&#8217;ve had in the past? Does it suggest that strength comes with &#8220;good design&#8221; or simply with &#8220;effective visuals&#8221; regardless of the design quality?<br /> </strong>Leaders already use visual thinking and visual communication in their everyday lives—often without even realizing it. If you are using PowerPoint slides (even if badly done, as most are), you are using visuals. If you get up at a whiteboard or flipchart to start mind-mapping or storyboarding an idea, you are using visuals. If you use data visualization in the form of graphs, or process diagrams, or a company organizational chart, you are incorporating visual methods to illustrate ideas. Now, whether it is being done as well or as effectively as it could be is a whole other question! Unfortunately, most business professionals do not have any kind of design background, so they do the best they can with the tools and abilities they have. So this is where those with a design thinking mindset, tool set, and skillset can really “step up to leadership” and wield considerable impact and influence. Just as those who speak a language fluently will be able to communicate far more effectively than those who only have a rudimentary vocabulary, those skilled in design, visual thinking and visual communication will have a distinct competitive advantage.</p> <p><strong>Many companies large and small have learned over time that the better (more memorable, etc.) their overall design identity is, the more positive the relationship of the consumer to their company or product. How does the concept of visual leader work? What is the method of making hay from visual leadership?<br /> </strong>If you think about it, we each have our own “brand identity.” In other words, what we are known for and known as. From a leadership perspective, we often talk about someone’s “leadership brand.” Similarly, in my coaching practice I often talk to my client in terms of these “3 Vs”: Visibility, Voice, and Value. This has to do with if you are seen and how you are seen (“Visibility”); if you are heard and how you are heard (“Voice”); and in what ways and to what extent are you perceived to be making a contribution (“Value”). All three of these attributes are based not on your own perception … but from the perspective of others. Another way of looking at it from a UX perspective: What kind of “user experience” do others have when interacting with you? Someone with a design thinking—and especially a UX-type—background can leverage their knowledge and experience to contribute to enhancing the end user’s experience when gauging an individual’s leadership effectiveness. And, as such, someone who develops their abilities in the art and science of visual leadership will be able to enhance their personal effectiveness.</p> <p><strong>Your book is of interest to designers because you are addressing strategies that involve them. But are you saying that designers are essential or nonessential to this process?<br /> </strong>My answer to that question is not “either/or,” but “both”! Designers, base on their experience and expertise, bring a unique and powerful perspective and arsenal to the table. They have the ability to see things and notice things, and to identify problems and discover solutions, in ways that nondesigners couldn’t even imagine. It’s as if designers have a superpower—like Superman’s x-ray vision, combined with a toolkit like Batman’s utility belt—that equips, enables and empowers them to solve problems … and, in some cases, even save lives! So, in this regard, when it comes to the integration of form and function, and the blending of art and science, designers are essential and indispensable in terms of their contributions. I think what my book <em>VisuaLeadership</em> does is demonstrate—both to designers and, of equal importance, to nondesigners—how thinking and communicating more visually can help <em>anyone</em> change the world … simply by more effectively getting others to be able to “see” what you’re saying. &nbsp;</p> <p>I<strong> would be remiss if I didn&#8217;t congratulate you on making such a potentially dry subject so engagingly entertaining. One of my favorite chapters is &#8220;How My Cardiologist Almost Gave Me a Heart Attack (Or, the Right and Wrong Ways to Communicate Numbers).&#8221; How are visuals best deployed to keep them safe and fuzzy?<br /> </strong>Thank you for saying that! My “3 E’s/3 I’s” approach to everything I do—including writing this book—is called, “Educate, Engage and Excite.” I strive to Educate (or “Inform”) people through the presentation of important ideas and information; capture and hold people’s “Interest” by actively Engaging them through entertaining storytelling; and Excite people so that they are “Inspired” to go out there and change the world. Depending on the context and the purpose, the chosen visuals can be whimsical and fun … or they can be devastating and heartbreaking. This is where the congruence of words and images is so essential. And this is where having a design thinking background can enable someone to take advantage of their knowledge, experience and skills in the most effective way. Just as any tool of any kind can be misused or abused, I’m sure that the list of design-related horror stories is miles long. &nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Is there any downside to leading with visuals?<br /> </strong>Just as there is no one-size-fits-all solution to any problem, visuals may not, necessarily, be necessary or appropriate for every situation. Sometimes, the written or the spoken word is sufficient or—in some cases—preferable or more effective than a visual might be. We, of course, need to consider our audience (or various audiences), and design and deliver our messaging in a manner and/or medium preferable to, and most effective, for them. Just as one person may prefer listening to an audiobook rather than reading the hardcover, someone else may prefer a graphic novel, a pop-up book or a video. So we need to be open, flexible and innovative in terms of our chosen approach. In fact, in <em>VisuaLeadership</em>, I distinguish between these four types of visual thinking–based approaches: visual imagery and drawing; mental models and frameworks; metaphor and analogy; and visual storytelling and humor. And, again, as in any situation, a wrong decision can backfire on you … while the right choice can move mountains.</p> <p><strong>If you were to present this material to an audience of graphic or UX/UI designers, how would you alter your content, if at all, to preach to the converted?<br /> </strong>The closing line of my TEDx talk on “The Power of Visual Thinking” (the transcript of which can be found in the Introduction of my book), is this famous quote by the French novelist Marcel Proust: “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands, but in seeing with new eyes.” Those trained in design thinking view the world through that lens. You know the value and the power of good design, and the horrors of poor design. However, most of the world does not have your design background, knowledge or experience. So, if you want to have impact and influence, if you want to lead, if you want to change hearts and minds so that you can change the world, you need to be able to get others to “see” what you’re saying. And leveraging the tools, tips and techniques I illustrate, both verbally and visually, in my book, will enable you to do so more effectively and more successfully. My wonderful new website designer, Nancy Siegel, recently introduced me to this simple-yet-powerful quote from graphic designer Saul Bass: &#8220;Design is thinking made visual.&#8221; And, as designers, with this understanding and appreciation, you are more equipped than anyone to bring this quote to life.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.printmag.com/design-books/the-daily-heller-seeing-is-leading/">The Daily Heller: Seeing is Leading</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.printmag.com">Print Magazine</a>.</p> Daily Heller Design Books Design Thinking Designer Interviews Steven Heller Todd Cherches Visual Leadership Steven Heller Saving the Last Taoist Effigy Shop in Singapore With Design https://www.printmag.com/international-design/saving-the-last-taoist-effigy-shop-in-singapore-with-design/ Print News urn:uuid:bf364e02-bba8-4631-b249-9a2d58d385c9 Fri, 12 Jun 2020 19:56:00 +0000 <p>You’re used to seeing design competitions from industry media and professional organizations.

How about one from a 124-year-old Taoist effigy shop in Singapore?</p> <p>“Established in 1896 and the last of its kind in the glittering city-state today, <a href="https://www.buddhashop.sg/community">Say Tian Hng Buddha Shop</a> lies almost forgotten in a corner of touristy Chinatown. It is filled from floor to ceiling with hundreds of wooden statues, some as large as a chair, some as small as an iPhone, some half-carved, others completed in resplendent gold.”</p> <p>The shop, the last of its kind in Singapore, is run by 89-year-old Tan Chwee Lian and her 68-year-old son—“keepers of a dying heritage craft” of Chinese immigrants who arrived in the country in search of a better life. The matriarch and her family repair and sell effigies of Taoist deities, and now, fourth-generation family members are seeking to reinvent the business so that it can stay in business. And to do so, they’re turning to design.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img class="aligncenter wp-image-562676 size-full" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/1-Photo-by-Joseph-Nair.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="533" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/1-Photo-by-Joseph-Nair.jpg 800w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/1-Photo-by-Joseph-Nair-450x300.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/1-Photo-by-Joseph-Nair-600x400.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p style="text-align: right;"><em>Joseph Nair</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&#8220;Design has always been vital to religion,&#8221; says Ng Tze Yong, descendent and a former President&#8217;s Scholar at Parsons. &#8220;It helps people visualize divinity.&#8221;</p> <p>The goal is a relaunching and rebranding of sorts. Currently, the shop’s patrons are temples and the devout—a small, ever-shrinking market. The family believe there’s great potential in offering their wares to an international secular audience—turning “objects of worship into objects of art.”&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img class="size-full wp-image-562677" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2-Photo-by-Joseph-Nair.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="533" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2-Photo-by-Joseph-Nair.jpg 800w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2-Photo-by-Joseph-Nair-450x300.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2-Photo-by-Joseph-Nair-600x400.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p style="text-align: right;"><em>Joseph Nair</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img class="size-full wp-image-562678" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/6-Photo-by-Joseph-Nair.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="533" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/6-Photo-by-Joseph-Nair.jpg 800w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/6-Photo-by-Joseph-Nair-450x300.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/6-Photo-by-Joseph-Nair-600x400.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p style="text-align: right;"><em>Joseph Nair</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>“In Chinese religion, history and mythology, there is an immense cast of memorable characters, with intertwining origin stories,” Ng says. “Most of them are still largely unknown to the West.

After earning her bachelor’s degree in graphic design at Boston University, she enrolled in School of Visual Arts&#8217; MFA Design program in New York City.</p> <p>As she details, “What I’ve gained from living in different places and interacting with diverse individuals enhances my passion to be a better designer. I chose design as my career because … I see graphic design as one of the most effective mediums to tackle social issues we are facing. I hope to use design to speak up, empower and connect people.”</p> <p>Check out her portfolio <a href="http://www.fayqiu.com/">here</a>. From animation to posters to branding projects, it’s a visual playground.&nbsp;</p> <p><i>CUT, </i>meanwhile, captures the last days of the oldest hair salon in New York’s Chinatown.</p> <p>As Qiu says, “I am hoping to get the voice out there and show how gentrification is deeply rooted in a history of discriminatory laws and practices in the United States, and how it also has enormous impacts on residents&#8217; lives.”</p> <p>Watch the film, and see excerpts from Qiu’s accompanying book, below.

Through the course of the day, as I&#8217;m held captive by this domain, I download images of all kinds as reference. Years ago, artists accumulated filing cabinets full of clippings and pictures that were collected in a &#8220;Morgue.&#8221; Today these collections consist of .jpgs, .tiffs, .gifs, .pngs, and .mp4 files. I&#8217;ve chosen to use this &#8220;Period of the Pandemic&#8221; to shovel through all the files I&#8217;ve downloaded, and try to collate them into <em>some</em> sense of order. Many of these grabs ultimately end up on the different social media platforms I dance around in. I have a personal Facebook page, but our studio, J.J. Sedelmaier Productions Inc. also has its own <a href="https://www.facebook.com/groups/30959631831">group</a>, as does the <a href="https://www.facebook.com/groups/256631941641687">&#8220;History of Animation&#8221;</a> group I established while teaching at New York University. (If what you see here tickles your fancy, I hope you&#8217;ll join both the <a href="https://www.facebook.com/groups/30959631831">JJSP</a> and <a href="https://www.facebook.com/groups/256631941641687">History of Animation</a> groups!) I also contribute to the endless other groups that specialize in stuff I dig.</p> <p>The whole social media experience has been nothing but exhilarating for me. By participating in the process of sharing material, it&#8217;s expanded both my acquaintance base as well as our studio&#8217;s identity and brand. There&#8217;s very little I enjoy more than being approached by someone I&#8217;ve never met before, and them saying, &#8220;I follow you on Facebook and love the stuff you post!&#8221;</p> <p>Below are some of the grabs that I&#8217;ve decided will provide some fun and maybe even expose some folks to things they&#8217;ve never encountered before.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img class="aligncenter wp-image-562284 size-full" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/DeNiro-Taxi-license.jpg" alt="" width="583" height="478" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/DeNiro-Taxi-license.jpg 583w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/DeNiro-Taxi-license-450x369.jpg 450w" sizes="(max-width: 583px) 100vw, 583px" /></p> <p style="text-align: right;"><em>Robert De Niro&#8217;s mid-&#8217;70s taxi driver license</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img class="aligncenter wp-image-562272 size-full" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/manix_ad.jpg" alt="" width="595" height="780" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/manix_ad.jpg 595w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/manix_ad-343x450.jpg 343w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/manix_ad-458x600.jpg 458w" sizes="(max-width: 595px) 100vw, 595px" /></p> <p style="text-align: right;"><em>Brazilian print ad for Manix gel</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img class="aligncenter wp-image-562291 size-full" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/86Lex9_16_14.jpg" alt="" width="1008" height="731" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/86Lex9_16_14.jpg 1008w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/86Lex9_16_14-450x326.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/86Lex9_16_14-600x435.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 1008px) 100vw, 1008px" /></p> <p style="text-align: right;"><em>East 86th Street, New York City, 1910</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img class="aligncenter wp-image-562282 size-full" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/LeeRemick1960.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="566" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/LeeRemick1960.jpg 800w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/LeeRemick1960-450x318.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/LeeRemick1960-600x425.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p style="text-align: right;"><em>Lee Remick, New York City, 1960.

I didn&#8217;t have my waders with me but proceeded to rummage through the contents. It was all their files, filled with correspondence and other ephemera.

Essentially, they have been records of experiences, research, musings and other pastimes of our contributors more than diaries in the conventional sense. <a href="http://www.jillnewhouse.com/artists/pamela-sztybel">Pamela Sztybel</a>, a New York–based painter, previous visiting artist at The American Academy in Rome and teacher at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica, has lately and continuously created a daily COVID-19 diary of her art on <a href="https://www.instagram.com/pamelasztybel/?hl=en">Instagram</a>. I&#8217;ve heard her work <a href="https://howtospendit.ft.com/art-philanthropy/208512-a-new-york-artist-s-coronavirus-chronicle">described as a</a> &#8220;vibrant political journal,&#8221; that &#8220;has found unexpected humor in the daily news.&#8221; After being introduced to her drawings, which for me recall the joy-cum-spiritualist wit of <a href="https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/the-ex-votos-of-churubusco">Ex-Votos</a>, I became a fan. I recently spoke with her about this obsessively purposeful intricate art produced in this unrelenting, joyless, explosive time.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_9395.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-562476" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_9395.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="1067" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_9395.jpg 800w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_9395-337x450.jpg 337w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_9395-450x600.jpg 450w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a><br /> <a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0201.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-562457" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0201.jpg" alt="" width="900" height="1285" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0201.jpg 900w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0201-315x450.jpg 315w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0201-420x600.jpg 420w" sizes="(max-width: 900px) 100vw, 900px" /></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Artists, it appears, are not as hard-pressed to fill their creative time as others working from home. What was your impetus to go Moleskine, as it were?<br /> </strong>I went Moleskine because when I started the diary I looked for a sketchbook that would be portable and one that would accommodate a year&#8217;s worth of entries. The Moleskine that I have is about 5 x 8 inches with about 200 sheets. I figured I could make a year&#8217;s worth of notations if I drew around two per page, one side. The book has thin pages, not really meant for watercolor, but once I started, and things got more complicated, there was no going back. I decided to work with what I had.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0200.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-562460" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0200.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="1091" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0200.jpg 800w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0200-330x450.jpg 330w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0200-440x600.jpg 440w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Did you have an idea of how and/or what you wanted to have fill your book once you saw those blank pages?<br /> </strong>My original thought was to keep a notebook of headlines with drawings as we went further into the election year. I did not know if I had the stamina to go for a full year, but I thought I&#8217;d give it a go. I don&#8217;t consider myself an illistrator. My work over the years has been landscape paintings and gardens and flowers. I showed at Spanierman Gallery for many years, and was scheduled to have another show of landscapes at Jill Newhouse Gallery in May. Postponed indefinitely for obvious reasons.</p> <p>The first drawing I saw that got me going was of the passengers leaving the cruise ship in Japan wearing masks. I did not know at the time that the COVID pandemic would dominate my notebook. After quarantine, and I had more time, the drawings became more elaborate since I was not in my studio and had some time on my hands. Just home, with the notebook, a set of Winsor Newton watercolors and some Micron pens. As I progressed I very quickly started composing the drawings to illustrate the headlines, rather than just drawing from a news photo. And I felt very engaged that way. Very different from my usual work, but I didn&#8217;t mind. It kept me occupied and also engaged with the unprecedented and frightening situation. I posted on Instagram daily from Day 1, originally for my friends, who seemed to have a positive response to what I was doing.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0199.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-562461" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0199.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="1102" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0199.jpg 800w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0199-327x450.jpg 327w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0199-436x600.jpg 436w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>It&#8217;s been over 14 weeks of self-imprisonment. Where are your subjects coming from?<br /> </strong>I read the news pretty carefully. All headlines are from &#8220;reliable&#8221; news sources, like BBC, CNN, <em>The Guardian</em>, NPR, ABC, AP, Reuters, etc., etc. But I have to admit it is anxiety inducing.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0197.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-562462" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0197.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="1154" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0197.jpg 800w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0197-312x450.jpg 312w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0197-416x600.jpg 416w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Have you made any discoveries about you or your surroundings that would have remained undiscovered if not for COVID?<br /> </strong>I suppose I could say, I really&nbsp;don&#8217;t mind&nbsp;sitting at a table and working in a very small format. (I did it once before, after knee&nbsp;surgery when I was also confined to my kitchen table, and illustrated a book for my friend Barbara Guggenheim, called Little Known Facts About Well Known People. (So I had a little practice, but that was&nbsp;four years ago.) I like thinking about how to make a visual out of the words. And I enjoy the words. Sometimes a headline can be quite poetic.&nbsp;</p> <p>It is challenging to draw detail, and meaning (hopefully) into an area that ends up being less than four to five inches including the headline. It&#8217;s new for me—the other miniature work for the book was portraits.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0196.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-562463" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0196.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="1122" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0196.jpg 800w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0196-321x450.jpg 321w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG_0196-428x600.jpg 428w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Will you keep this going once (and if) the pandemic subsides?<br /> </strong>I am going to keep going till a natural ending presents itself—either the last page of the notebook, the end of the calendar year, the end of the pandemic or the 365th day.

A well-crafted grotesque: IBM Plex. As the company details, “Plex is just as important as our name or our logo. It fine-tunes the tone of our words. It represents who we are and what we believe—as a company and as designers. Every decision was made with purpose; every detail has a reason for being.”</p> <p>Furthermore, “Living up to our name—<i>International Business Machines</i>—meant thinking globally right from the start.”</p> <p>IBM has since released Plex in more than 100 languages—including the cornerstone Plex Arabic, which just took home a wooden pencil in the <a href="https://www.dandad.org/awards/professional/2020/232950/ibm-plex-arabic/">D&amp;AD Awards</a>. Wael Morcos (a 2015 PRINT New Visual Artist) of <a href="https://morcoskey.com/">Morcos Key</a> and <a href="http://debakir.com/">Khajag Apelian</a> designed the face, with creative direction by Mike Abbink and type engineering by Paul van der Laan and Pieter van Rosmalen.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>“Plex Arabic was designed to complete IBM’s corporate font families,” Morcos Key writes. “Inspired by the Paul Rand IBM logo, the design echoes the company’s design ethos: an organic mix of engineered and humanistic shapes. The design of the Arabic translates centuries of calligraphic conventions to a modern typographic context.”</p> <p>One more key thing about Plex—it’s free. Completely. Get Plex Arabic and all other variants on <a href="https://github.com/IBM/plex">Github</a>, and read much more about the development of the face <a href="https://www.ibm.com/plex/">here</a>.&nbsp;</p> <p>In the meantime, here’s a closer look at the award-winning Plex Arabic.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-562620"

small businesses facing dire economic times. The concept? Give the community a way to show beloved businesses some love while scoring some well-designed merch in the process.</p> <p>Created by a trio of innovative minds at <a href="https://www.rga.com/">R/GA</a>, the project pairs designers with small businesses, and the subsequent collaboration is made available for a set preorder period. Production then takes place, and all profits go to the featured businesses. After launching with Debbie Millman’s <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/B-pbjViAnLM/">Astoria Bookshop design</a>, the initiative has gone on to feature designs by <a href="https://www.instagram.com/merchaid">many creatives</a>, raising nearly $200,000.</p> <p>Now, in support of the global movement that has arisen in the wake of the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery and the injustices perpetrated toward innumerable others, Merch Aid is releasing a collection designed by black artists, with the funds going to organizations that support the black community.&nbsp;</p> <p>“Merch Aid was started for a simple reason: to support those in need through connecting the community,” the site details. “For too long, the voices of the black community have been silenced. A kind of silence that has come at the expense of black lives, over and over again.”</p> <p>Here are the current releases thus far, which are available as both T-shirts and prints.

But there can be an upside: Isolation can open up our horizons if we use it to focus our creative energies.</p> <p>If you’re tired of binging movies and TV shows, you can use your involuntary downtime to hone your photography skills and capture a record of the moment. Or you could browse through your old pictures and look back on the good times while looking forward to future ones—and think about creative ways to display those most precious memories in your home.</p> <p>When you want to print your best photos in physical form, canvas prints are the perfect medium. The photo printing experts from <a href="https://www.bestcanvas.ca/">BestCanvas.ca</a> are here to tell us more.</p> <h2>&nbsp;</h2> <p><img class="size-full wp-image-562501 aligncenter" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/9.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="686" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/9.jpg 800w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/9-450x386.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/9-600x515.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <h2>&nbsp;</h2> <h2>Find Inspiration Right Where You Are</h2> <p>If you’ve got a passion for photography that’s been lying dormant, now’s your chance to get your enthusiasm back. Sure, you might not be shooting any crowded events for a while. But spending your days at home lets you discover rich subjects that you might otherwise have overlooked.</p> <p>Train your lens on small details—the grain of wood, the texture of fabrics—or just into those forgotten corners of your home. If you can look at what’s familiar with fresh eyes, you’ll find a wealth of inspiration for your next shot.</p> <p>And if you’re lucky enough to have a garden, you’re guaranteed a change of scenery every day—even as you stay in one place. Subtle variations in form and color as the seasons shift will have you jumping out of bed, ready to capture nature’s beauty.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2>Canvas Prints—a Creative Wall Decor Solution</h2> <p>If you’ve taken a new photo that you think is good enough for a gallery, <a href="https://www.bestcanvas.ca/wall-decor/photo-canvas-prints.jsf">canvas prints</a> are a creative and surprisingly affordable way to set up that gallery at home—without breaking lockdown! Just upload a digital file to a respected provider like BestCanvas.ca and they’ll do the rest.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-562505" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/1-CP.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="600" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/1-CP.jpg 800w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/1-CP-450x338.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/1-CP-600x450.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Printed using HP Latex Inks on real canvas fabric that’s wrapped by hand over a spruce-wood stretcher frame, each canvas print will bring out the very best in your image. Expect head-turning color saturation and intricate detail that will make you see your photo anew.</p> <p>Whether you upload one of your captures from your time in quarantine or an older family photo, you’ll be delighted with the super-quick turnaround—and with how your new canvas looks once it’s hung. If you’re going to be spending a lot of time looking at the same four walls, a new decor feature can be the perfect way to lift your mood.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img class="size-full wp-image-562503 aligncenter" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/8.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="533" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/8.jpg 800w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/8-450x300.jpg 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/8-600x400.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>If you’ve had a fresh rush of photographic inspiration, get your image turned into a beautiful canvas print now with BestCanvas.ca!
