I like people, dogs, food, bikes, skateboards and sleeping.

Being attacked by this dog.

Michael Christopher Brown, Photographer
While in Libya, Michael was hit on two separate occasions. “I lost almost half the blood in my body, needed two transfusions with shrapnel nearly piercing a lung and a major artery in my arm.” He was also kidnapped in Benghazi, saying of the ordeal, “These experiences made me question if what I was doing was meaningful enough for myself to continue doing it. Eventually I discovered yes, it is, but only when listening to myself.”

"A feminist to me is someone that believes in equal rights and equal opportunities for all people regardless of gender (or sexuality, or ethnicity, or socioeconomic status). And hell yes it applies to me. Feminism to me goes beyond just gender issues- it encompasses everything.”

Aaron James Draplin, Graphic Artist
“I like to get the client involved. Fuck all the standoff-ish, “This is my creative endeavor and you better pick one” stuff. Work with people. Let them guide you as much as you guide them. That makes for ownership from all sides, you know? Designers are so good at bitching about changes, and how many hours they had to work, and all that shit. Whatever. Spend a summer trimming trees for a rural electricity company, and you’ll never lament another client change, ever. I don’t miss those bald-faced hornets that use to come after me.”

“So part of what I tried to do with this book was re-frame feminine values into more inclusive language. When most guys hear “women’s issues” they think, “Those aren’t my issues.” Our book is about championing the virtues, skills and competencies of women and helping men understand that they too can harness these traits for competitive advantage.”

"For us, as long as it seems well thought out, has good design sensibilities, feels like it has emotion and feeling in it, and is interesting to look at."
