I have been collecting beer bottle caps for some time now and have a shoe box full of them now. I like to compare the logos on each of them to see how some have more detail than others (Modelo has a solid gold cap).
I would like to create an interesting design or create something outstanding with them, instead of just keeping the caps in a box. Family has suggested to decorate a picture frame, but I turn to fellow AIGA designers to brainstorm with me and help me come
up with an awesome solution :)
This brief article outlines the historical contribution from designers and reminds creatives that the work they're doing today will someday be archived and used as a historical reference later.
There are three general types or client/designer relationships: boss/worker, friends and partners. All three types have their place, but only one of them offers the potential for truly great design to emerge.
One of the perks of being the managing editor at AIGA is spending my
mornings reading design stories and calling it “work.” But not everyone
(or wants to) peruse RSS feeds like it’s their job. Consider
this a hit list (as well as a few things you may have missed) of the
things I’ve and seen, read and watched this week.

I’ve seen it dozens of
times. A design team meets after observing people use their design, and they’re
excited and energized by what they saw and heard during the sessions. They’re
all charged up about fixing the design. Everyone comes in with ideas, certain they
have the right solution to remedy users’ frustrations. Then what happens?
