Do you have any traditions that you celebrate from year to year? I usually take two weeks off end of December – January, but boy have I been on the road this year for pleasure and work (Japan, Chicago (work), England (work, Maryland (work), Fire Island, Cape Cod, Israel/Jordan, and LA (work) – so I decided to stick around and (gasp) work!
A few of my fav life links
It is getting cold here in the New York City suburb of Connecticut, and while I love freshly fallen snow as it dusts the trees, I could do without ice and freezing temps. Snow is beautifully represented in Japanese woodblock art. I subscribe to Daily Art and these are some of my favs. I highly recommend it!
My wall calendar of choice is Studio Hinrichs 365 Typography Calendar. It is bold and beautiful, and I use the sheets to wrap presents when the months are done. Check it out!
I love a fun t-shirt and my fav to wear to the gym are ones I get at design conferences (I attended How Live and Adobe Max this year). But, for my younger daughter who is a math and science teacher, I buy t-shirts at Chummy Tees – they have such fun options!
Internet shopping with a pulse? Yes, please! My older daughter is VP of Biz Dev for the Daily Beast and she and her team always make sure that SCOUTED has great finds and great deals! I did especially well here on Black Friday 🙂
I take this time to donate to charities that I believe in.
- Sandy Hook Promise Foundation
- St. Jude Hospital
- Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE)
- Planned Parenthood
All the names are linked if you want to make an end of year donation.
Last but not least, Ruzow Graphics won 5 awards for client work in 2019.
- the Greenwich Land Trust Annual Report
- the New York Building Congress Special Report on Tourism and Culture in NYC
- the Veris Benchmarks Website
- and two print pieces for The Oxford University — a brochure for The Hillary Rodham Clinton Chair in Women’s History and a series of brochures for the Schwarzman Center
Three of them are published here if you want to take a look.
I hope you have a wonderful wintry end to 2019. Eat, drink, and be merry!
