2019 GD USA Award winner.

A little over a year ago, the new brand identity I designed for Cincinnati Public Radio was unveiled and started to make its debut around Cincinnati…

It’s been pretty neat to drive around Cincinnati and see the logo I designed on billboards and pop up unexpectedly here and there. Today, I noticed that the logo I designed won a rather prestigious 2019 American Graphic Design Award

This year’s showcase of 600 pieces (winnowed from more than 12,000 entries) reflects the many ways that graphic design shapes business and society, products and services, commerce and culture and causes. Winners run the gamut from print and packaging to internet and interactive, from dream assignments to bread and butter endeavors, from established stars to rising newcomers, from red states to blue.

Pretty neat. Just knowing that I created a logo that will be part of a very vibrant and diverse Cincinnati community for the foreseeable future is an even better feeling.

But the best feeling is having that logo in my portfolio.

Thank you, Graphic Design USA! 😀🏆❤️

Checking in on the WyzeCams.

It was a very rainy night as you can see from our third-floor WyzeCam

The new iPad that Genifer got me for Christmas came with a free year of Apple TV. So we finished watching the first season of The Morning Show and also watched the latest episode of The Servant, both on Apple TV. While we were watching those on our TV, I was also watching our Mavs get thumped by the Lakers on a little tablet.

It seems that almost everyone has a streaming service. Right now, we do YouTubeTV, Netflix, Disney+, PrimeVideo (free with Amazon Prime), Hulu (free with Sprint), Apple TV (free with my iPad), NBC Sports Gold (for Premier League), ESPN+ and Pluto TV (Pluto is completely free). And they all have apps for our Amazon Fire TV sticks and all of our mobile devices.

I saw a bundle deal where you could get Hulu, Disney+ and ESPN+ for $12.99 a month. That’s a great value. Disney is worth it just for The Mandalorian. And I just love ESPN+ for all the extra sporting events. All the soccer alone makes ESPN+ worth it for me. And I’m on my third trip through the thirteen seasons of Ancient Aliens on Hulu. It’s one of my go-to shows to listen to at work.

What’s funny to me is that out of all these streaming services, the one I think I watch the most is Pluto TV. There are just soooo many random channels on Pluto. I love their surfing channel, 4KTV and the slow tv channel. It’s really a pretty incredible service considering that it’s completely free. There is so much stuff.

Anyway, it was such a grey and rainy Friday. It was perfect for binging watching shows. 😀📷🌧️📺❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made her turkey meatloaf again for dinner tonight…

Her meatloaf is sooo good. 😀🦃❤️

Today’s my Twitter birthday!

Today was my Twitter birthday! I’ve been on Twitter for 11 years now!

I guess, time really flies when you’re tweeting tweets. 😀🕊️🎂❤️
