I have an illustration in today's Globe and Mail newspaper, on the front page of the Report on Business (ROB) section, accompanying the Profit by Design article by Gordon Pitts. It's about the dynamics between "...the bean counters and the creative free spirits and visionaries," and how business needs design to thrive in a competitive market. You can read the story here, though the illustration doesn't accompany the online version.
May 4 update: If you missed my post here and were wondering if that was really my illo on Tuesday, it's because my credit line was accidentally omitted when this article went to press (the Globe launched a complete redesign of the paper the day before, but inevitably there were a few wrinkles here and there that didn't get ironed out in time). As always, the Globe design team was stellar and let me know immediately. My credit line ran the next day.

I've just added A History of Graphic Design by Philip Meggs to my list of design library essentials. It's probably the most comprehensive book on design available, with a hefty price to match: around $103.00 Canadian. Looks gorgeous––have a peek inside here.
