  • Find out if the internship you’re offering is worth it

    August 22, 2014 by Chris Wolfgang

    Let’s answer a few questions, shall we? It’ll be fun. Do you offer an internship through your business? Do you know why? If you answered “No,” or even better, “I don’t know” to either of those, never fear. You probably already know that poorly organized internships are a waste of time for everybody: The intern…

  • The one where I say Stefan Sagmeister is wrong

    August 13, 2014 by Chris Wolfgang

    I absolutely adored this video of Stefan Sagmeister: “You Are Not a Storyteller.” Mostly because of the way he says “bullshit.” I defy anyone to tell me it is not the most lyrical pronunciation of an obscenity ever.

  • So you want to design for nonprofits? Here’s how to actually make that work

    July 9, 2014 by Chris Wolfgang

    “All of us have a desire to do good in the world. Kind of an ethical lifestyle. We care about stuff. We care about people, we love people. That’s the motivation behind this. And we just also happen to be really good at websites and designing stuff. So we wanted to combine the two.” That’s…

  • Create or collect: Find inspiration with fine art

    June 18, 2014 by Chris Wolfgang

    In 2013, Micah Baldwin spoke at Big Omaha about how entrepreneurs need to stop lying about being happy and be honest instead.
