OK Design Newsies. Here's a link to the AMA: news.layervault.com/stories/26128 Office hours are until 3pm eastern.

If you're looking for an example of what I just said, study this spread from Ways of Seeing: frankchimero.com/talks/designin… It's all there.
What I find works: make media inline & change writing for better transitions. Refer to the media in the writing—don't just stick it there.

Thanks for the compliments and well-wishes, everyone! I'm jetting off to @kerningconf in the highest spirits. Ciao.
Those of you getting broken images: you're probably on a Retina screen. I was a doof and pointed to non-existent 2x assets. Womp wah. Fixed!
Big thanks to @danielgblackman who took photos of the printed work. He makes fun of me for thanking him so much, but screw off Dan. Thanks.
Also doing Twitter maintenance. Personal tweets moving over to @another_frank. Professionalish stuff here. Will change this handle in a bit.
Happy to announce I'm launching a design studio named Another. Here’s its snazzy website: ofanother.com
Whelp, here goes nothing.
Apple needs to get with the times and make Apercu the system font instead of Helvetica.

Dunno. Just spitballing here. ¯\_💩_/¯
Perhaps you stick with the California theme & call it OS X Arrested Development because everybody has to learn a new programming language.

Just published my first post on Medium! “This Should Only Take a Minute or Four, Probably” medium.com/@fchimero/this…
This concludes BerryChat™. Good night. Back to your non-berry-related bullshit.
Never forget: raspberries are tiny strawberries turned inside-out.
The magical thing about berries is you can buy a whole bushel, bury your face in them and eat like a hog. No one knows. Berries don't judge.
Blackberries in August. Those are always the best. They wait for their shot. Patient. The Mariano Rivera of berries. (I don't know.)
Coming up on berry season. This is a good thing to chat about on Friday nights. Strawberries now. Raspberries in June. Blueberries in July.
It's Friday night and you're tweeting about fonts on a publicly traded social network. I'm reading it. Let's just call the whole thing off.
JabbaScript: when JavaScript is bloated and evil.
My @replies are useless bc my handle is caught up in the Social Media Marketing™ spammy echo-chamber. Help @twitter? cl.ly/image/1j0V1Q2s…
RIP Massimo. You were one of the greats, and we'll continue to learn from you.
The @greatdiscontent magazine has a sideways goat in it. That is all.
