Yesterday I got to reprise my guest speaker gig in Jennie Jacobs’ Intro to Design class at Santa Barbara City College. This time I actually prepared, so it went much better than last year. I talked about my career, creative philosophy, and work—presenting some of my best stuff from over the past 12 years. I’m
(Cross-posted from MyBandRocks.com) Finally, after months and months of half-assedly cruel neglect and public broken promises, it’s here! My first solo release, a demo EP called “Rotten Miracles.” Listen to it right here (and buy on Bandcamp and soon, iTunes!): Rotten Miracles by Keir DuBois Twenty years into an expensive hobby called “music,” I’ve already
Forgot to post back in July that I enjoyed two AIGA Los Angeles events within a week of each other: “Writing for Designers” at the Unique Space (with Irene Hoffman from AIGA SB) and “Music + Design” at the Downtown Independent. Re: the former, writing + design = two big chunks of Keir catnip. Re:

I think I’ve arrived at a new old-man-hobby: I’ve lived in Ventura for 11+ years, but in all that time (or ever, if my slapdash googling is accurate), the city has never had an official flag.

Home from the land of beer, rain, and well-designed furniture. The AIGA Leadership Retreat just gets better every year. These people are the best and I can’t wait for 2016. As before, I did a more substantial recap on the AIGA SB website here. TL;DR: Third time was definitely the charm.
