  • ZINES!

    I’m starting to delve into some research on zines for my thesis. If you create zines, I want to hear from you! Please e-mail Hayley at heyzinesters@gmail.com with your answers to the following questions:


    Your Name
    Location

    Why do you create zines?

    Who or what inspired you to start making zines?

    Do you have a particular topic of interest or does your zine change according to preferences that day/week/month?

    What is your overall process? (What tools do you use and how do you go about putting your zine together?)

    Do you use a computer to make them or do you work by hand?

    How do you feel when you finish and publish your zine?

    What’s your favorite zine?

    Do you collect zines? If so, how long have you been collecting?

    What’s your thoughts on the permanence of zines versus an e-zine?

    Any zine resources/books you would like to share?

    Feel free to expand upon these questions as well. I would love to hear from a variety of people. Even if you don’t make zines, but would like to discuss them, I would also like to hear from you.

    Thanks!
    (And reblog if you can)

  • PandoMonthly: Fireside Chat with Huffington Post Co-Founder, BuzzFeed CEO Jonah Peretti

    BuzzFeed’s Jonah Peretti and PandoDaily’s Sarah Lacy chats about what it means for content to go viral, his belief that human curation is more important than SEO in the age of the social Web, and why he believes that BuzzFeed can support both investigative journalism and light-hearted slideshows with the same enthusiasm.

  • Problems in Graphic Design final project.

    I took some Craigslist ads in Memphis, and I designed a poster for it and hand lettered a smaller ad for it. I want to eventually re-post them either on Craigslist or in public.
