We learned about redesigning the business of advertising from Cindy Gallop. It’s Nice that taught us that Logos date like clothes and six designers debate what makes an ideal brand identity. Our friends at 99U told us to Check Your Ego to Making Meetings Less Scary for Introverts. Wolff Olins tells us why great strategies and ideas often fail. Adobe wants us to Reconnect with the Idea of “Creating for Tomorrow”. My favorite new site, Fold Magazine, teaches us How to Master the Art of Doing. Bob is on fire lately and The High Cost Of Online Trash is no exception. Alissa Walker reminded us How Design Observer Founder William Drenttel Changed the Conversation. And finally, Fast Co. showed us how Wieden+Kennedy strives to make advertising that transcends branding and drives the pop-culture conversation.
