p.s. our blog is currently in the middle of a pretty exciting rehaul (we’re launching something new). if you’re looking for the link to a particular post, you can google the title of the post and “pink essay” and it should come up, or email us and we will track it down for you :)

we believe that good design is democratic, accessible, antiracist, sustainable and collaborative. we’re here to make connections, tell stories, and build a new design culture.
