I discovered an interesting site today called “design glut.” The intertubes led me first to their store (they had a pork chop bank), but I was intrigued by the following description near the top of the page: “Our webzine is an inspirational resource for entrepreneurs.” More accurately, their webzine is a series of interviews with successful designers. More inspirational than resource, I’d say, but good breakfast reading nonetheless.
It does make me a little upset and covetous to read entries where the founding waifs interview successful designers their own age (24-year-old cool hunters get invited to Davos? Seriously?) but those are my own issues. I just can’t handle people who are two or three years out of undergrad and already “experts” about something. Expertise is your consolation prize for getting older and less attractive. I’m sorry, but that’s just the rule. You’re not allowed to have youth/beauty AND expertise/money. It upsets the balance of the universe or something.
