why this, why now?

I've decided to try out a blog because I seem to have ideas and get ideas all the time, with no central and accessible way of documenting these ideas. It could be ideas for my own personal projects, ideas for teaching design, design inspiration, or a place to put up some of my own design/art/creative stuff.

So here we go, lets see how well it suits my intentions....

IdN magazine - International designers Network

IdN™ Magazine® — IdN v17n5: Wayfinding+Signage

This is one of my favourite design magazines in terms of inspiring me for ideas for my teaching.  This current issue has sparked an idea for my year 13 Graphics students first design project for the year which will be based on signage, mapping and wayfinding. 
An interesting quote on the cover from Robert Luis Stevenson that "it is better to travel hopefully than to arrive"
