The Itch and the Hibernation
After three years of writing, graphicpush is going on a small holiday. There needs to be time to rejuvenate, redesign, realign and relaunch.
Again, life eclipses my available writing time.
At first it’s a dim yellow naggy thing in the back of your brain, then it grows like a time-lapsed pearl, scratching, irritating, a tiny kernel of an idea being slowly refined until a glistening new jewel is spat out into the design world. The ideas are there, the desire is there, but the free time is not. A redesign is coming, but not immediately.
Which brings me to my next point. I am currently writing two books on design for Friends of Ed, and have a new baby girl in my life. I have been slowly reducing the amount of things that distract from those two things, and, as much as I hate admitting so, graphicpush.com has fallen into the “just don’t have time” category.
This is not an end, merely the beginning of a new phase of the site. When it relaunches, it will be realigned to my interests and to better serve the design community. There are a lot of things I want GP to accomplish, and the current incarnation simply does not allow me to branch out in the directions I want.
We can rebuild it. Bigger, faster, stronger and maybe with some new colors to boot. I look forward to seeing you all in a few months.
