Welcome To xTracts

Howdy. This blog is meant to be my “Julie/Julia Project.” Or at least I hope it will be. Not that I expect Meryl Streep to play me in a movie, but I hope it will provide me the impetus to do more design for myself.

I was chatting with a friend when he shared his new site with me. (raisenochicken.com) It really inspired me and I realized that I have been relying on my job to be my sole creative outlet. Being an art director for a B2B marketing firm has kept me employed during this rough economy, but as you can imagine, the work is very buttoned-up to say the least.

So I have decided to challenge myself with self-imposed projects that will be a 180 from my day job. I also will use this space to link to design examples I find intriguing.
