Thank You and Happy New Year!

I've been blessed to have over 308,000 site visits over the past few years. The site is dedicated to all things design from typography to architecture, interiors to industrial design and more. A mix of curated content, original posts and just plain inspiring design finds, the M blog has been a great vehicle to share learnings over the year. In 2016 I hope to post more original content than ever before. Stay tuned and comment on what you'd like to see moving forward. Cheers, M

Branding is still special

Branding in the physical realm will always be there. There is a tactile touch to experiencing a brand with all the detailed decisions that are made on color, type, paper, material, etc. No matter what becomes possible in the digital realm the physical environment where branding exists will always be critical to the human connection with consumers.
