Hear, Share, Listen, Believe

The annual event for Planned Parenthood of the Heartland to show support for reproductive health care and education is called MOXIE. As a long time supporter of Planned Parenthood, given our current political climate, I wanted to do a little more than simply donate money. Working with Tessa Wedburg, I designed two new posters to be auctioned off. 

Both designs ask us all to Hear, Share, Listen, Believe. I’ll post the designs here after the event. If you’re interested in showing your support, check out MOXIE or simply donate online.

Engaged, Informed Citizenry

When consuming media, any and all forms, from social to television to print to radio and podcast, we need to approach that task as if we were an important member of an engaged, informed citizenry. Because we need to be. We are citizens, not consumers. We need to bring our knowledge, critical thinking, and thoughtfulness to the media ecosystem so we can make sense of our past and present in the hopes we’re able to set a trajectory for the future that is firmly based in reality. 


In a cold winter Nebraska, full of below zero temps, freezing rain, blustery winds, and snowy snow, it was easy to hibernate. It was easy to get tired of trudging through the muck and the grime as one snow blast melted away right before another pounded down. Tired of layering up to go into the office, tired of the wind making your face hurt, tired of almost falling on an icy sidewalk. So yeah, I have no qualms with having been a hermit for most of the winter, fireside. Not working too hard, not pushing it, not go-go-go. As the winter appears to be letting up, maybe you’ll see me around more. And maybe not, who knows.

FORGE: Create

For the last few months, I’ve been saying NO to a lot of stuff. Can’t do that talk, can’t do this review, can’t make it that other thing. But I did say yes to FORGE. A session on how the creative process is a process within a process. Myself, Nicolas Frederickson, and Mike and Patty Malone will offer our insights into creativity in a discussion-heavy format to a group of young design students eager to learn.
