Welcome! If you followed the link here from BicycleDesign.net, you already know a few things about me. I am a product designer, I have been blogging for a pretty long time, and I am slightly obsessed with bikes and pedal powered transportation. In addition to bicycles and other types of human powered vehicles though, I have other design interests that I didn’t discuss in my previous bicycle focused blog. This will be the place to mash up all of those interests and ideas. I’ll be talking about bikes, lighting, furniture, sustainable design, alternative and active transportation, art, architecture… basically anything that interests me or relates to a project that I am working on (or would like to work on). Posts here may be infrequent at times (probably most of the time), but I consider this space to be a personal design journal… or just a creative outlet… or something else that I will figure out down the road.
If you are interested in design topics (sometimes bike related, sometimes not) feel free to follow along. If not, that’s OK too. I don’t expect this blog to ever be anywhere near as big as Bicycle Design was at its peak…and that’s just fine. There won’t be any advertisements here, so I am not concerned about metrics, or traffic patterns, or any of that kind of stuff. What I do want is simply a place to share and discuss ideas and design concepts. That is what excited me about the idea of starting a blog back in 2005, and that is what I would like to strive for again with this new one. I don’t know exactly how it will evolve yet, but subscribe to the feed and stay tuned to find out.
