Daniel's Monsters featured in Booth

Booth is a beautiful annual poetry magazine (and weekly blog) published by Butler University in Indianapolis. To my surprise and delight, this years edition, which came out in May, featured Daniels Daily Monsters!

First, check out the gorgeous cover, which was part-inspiration for the little illustrations I’m doing on the site:

The first page of the article featured the Monster that Leigh drew:

Netmag article on Icon Design

This month’s .net magazine (#196 December) features my article ‘Design the perfect icon’. focussing on icon design for websites, rather than for software. It expands on the talk I gave at @media earlier this year Icons for Interaction
