Terri and I have another site outside of Blue Collar, Black Tie; it’s our professional site for our freelance graphic design and marketing business, Lancer Creative Services. I post articles there semi-occasionally, as the mood takes me, talking about various aspects of design and marketing.
The most recent such post is a short item about one of our favorite things that doesn’t exist anymore, at least not in the same way that it was. Prior to its acquisition by The Gap, Inc., Banana Republic was a wonderfully odd and anti-fashion outlet owned and run by honest-to-god artists, and their catalog was fantastic. It was so cool that 30 years later, we still have a half-dozen of them here at the MacQ house. Check out my little post over at Lancer Creative Services (“Lancer” as in “freelancer, but not free”).
