An example of design far out-staging technology. Take a look at the Canadian Library Association’s strategy to encourage young people into the profession: Info*Nation. Not since I won my iPod have I felt so extra-cool. I always felt cool for being a librarian; what better way to feed that coolness by encouraging others to think librarians are cool too!
I’ll add that one of the participants, M.J. D’Elia, (who I know is an excellent graphic designer) was at Dalhousie when I was there. He won the Vagianos Medal too. Watch him. I mean it.
