Design Crush: Dangerdust


Dangerdust is an “anonymous artist duo with a fondess for chalk dust”.

All Calls and Meetings Must Start and End on Time


Setting boundaries was a big theme for me in 4Q14, and after a 30-day journaling exercise back in October, I was inspired to finally write a business policies document. The first item that showed up: all calls and meetings must start and end on time.

Ouch, right? But here’s there deal: I’m a calm, cool, strategic designer… that happens to attract a lot of hot messes. The stakeholders, themselves, are very organized and orderly, but for whatever reason, they inherited this thing of a digital presence that went haywire, and look to me to perform a serious overhaul. Miracle, really.

With that comes an unspoken expectation that I maintain a buttoned down relationship with time (you can’t hunker down unless you button down, right?), and I’m okay with that, ’cause… like… I do.

Plus, I hate it when meetings run over, don’t you?

Until next time,
