Sometimes I forget how many creators DFTBA.com represents and then I’m suddenly really proud and excited when I remember. So, with just 13 hours left in the DFTBA Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Regular Old Monday, and Cyber Monday Sale, here’s an incomplete list of the people we provide our services for:
Charles Trippy, who is right now selling shirts to fund brain cancer research
And there are a bunch of others, but the list was getting long and I’ve run out of time to write it because I literally have to go to the warehouse right now and help build boxes for shipping mugs in!
I’m really proud to have built such a useful company that works with so many inspiring and awesome creators and organizations. Thanks to Alan and Sam and John and Kristen and Dave and Matt and Katherine and Lindsey and everyone else who’s helped build this company.
$3 shipping for the next 12 hours folks…and your chances of getting your purchase before Christmas go WAY DOWN after this week.
Hey Karen I'm a senior in high school and you'r the one who introduced me to the RISD ways & I have been in love with the school ever since! Right now I am preparing my portfolio! I need all the suggestions I can get! I have seen your video of course but I just wanted to like get like more suggestions!! I'm kinda freaking out too because I love this school so much and I just... I have to go! It's soooo good! It's like the college from my dreams! Please just help me! I'm freaking out! -Tasnima
My playlist about Art School videos might help you. And I’m also planning a video for tips about portfolio websites for sometime in January, so keep an eye out for that! And otherwise, just take a deep breath and calm down.
Hey Karen! I admire your graphic design work. I am also a graphic designer, and I have a question for you. Do you ever look back on any of your professional work & critique it, then wish that you could change an aspect of it? I have this problem a lot because I am an awful perfectionist and was wondering how you handle this feeling. Thanks!
Only every day of my life. But you just have to learn to move on and keep improving. Maybe put your old work on an external hard drive that you don’t let yourself look at very often?
will you stick around after your meetup? I bought tickets for a screening at the same time already but I was hoping you'd stick around for 10 more minutes so I could get to the metro convention centre to give you something?
I’m not sure what the vibe will be like, if they’ll be kicking us out directly after or if I can stick around, but I’m sure you’ll be able to find me sometime over the weekend!
hi karen :) is there anywhere i can contact you in particular? i'm about to send a message to you on your xperpetualmotion youtube account, but i'm not sure if that's ideal for you! so if you have an email or anything, i'd love to be able to exchange some back and forth with you... i'm having some college issues, in short
I haven’t replied to a message from my YouTube inbox in years. The best way to contact me is at firstname.lastname@example.org, though I admit sometimes I’m really bad at email, so if I don’t reply in a week or so, feel free to send a followup so I remember.
However, if your school problems are pretty specific, I don’t know how much help I can be. Feel free to ask, but a lot of the time my advice is just to talk to a guidance counselor or academic advisor at your school, since they’ll usually know how to help your situation much better than I could.
have you read the book shady characters by keith houston? it talks about the history of punctuation and symbols, and it's super interesting! I feel like you would like it because it's a lot like your history of the ampersand video.
I haven’t read it yet, but it’s on my Christmas wish list. It looks really great.
