Thanks so much to AIGA Toledo and the Graphic Design Department at Bowling Green State University for the invitation, and to everyone who came out to my presentation at the Wolfe Center for the Arts. Here is a list of links from the presentation as well as a PDF of the slides.

Plus the reviews of last year’s 99% were ecstatic.

How could this be anything but spectacular?
