This isn’t a post about design, but lets say that it is because what I will be doing is writing about design, and that’s what this is about. In the next day or two, the GDC National Blog will relaunch, with myself as the editor. I’ll be contributing entries on a weekly basis, some of […]

Photos from the GDC AGM 2009
On Thursday evening, we caught a flight from Victoria to Calgary, had a short layover and took off for Winnipeg – we arrived 20 minutes early. The Winnipeg airport has a sign that proclaims “WINNIPEG WELCOMES THE WORLD.” It’s very retro. It reminds me of being very young and seeing 70s stuff everywhere. All that […]

It’s been absolutely beautiful here in Victoria the last several days. We went for a walk on Monday night down to Dallas Road – […]

What a day! Bergamot just spent Sunday doing a shoot for Lynn Demers‘ sculptures on Saltspring Island. The new photos will be appearing on her website soon. We’re just waiting for the ferry to take us back to Vancouver Island now.
weir at lake cowichan
The website has been given a new lighter treatment. Let’s call it tech-rust. The above photo is from the weir at Lake Cowichan – actually not too far from the Caycuse Bell a couple entries back. It was built in 1956 and serves to regulate levels of both the lake and the river. On the […]
