State of the blog: New Site, New Stuff

You may (or may not) have wondered what's been going on with DesignBoston. Well, I'm here to answer that.

Over the last few months, I've been rather busy: working 60+ hours at two jobs, all while working on a brand new DesignBoston, and organizing a social media fund raiser. I bought a fancy new URL (reset your RSS readers!), moved from Blogger to WordPress for my blogging platform, and bought my own hosting space.

I also brought along Joyce Cadena-Hannon, a local photographer and graphic designer (and one of my oldest friends), to help Christopher and myself bring in more content. While DesignBoston was my brainchild, I love that Christopher and Joyce introduce subjects and ideas I hadn't thought of.

So far, so good, but I'm not done yet.

Over the next several months, I plan on introducing new discussion topics, and new items that aren't quite blogging but are well suited for DesignBoston.

All the while, I want to hear from you. Do you like the new site? Do you think we should do something a little (or a lot) different? Do you want to contribute in some way? I'm open to suggestions of all types, so please, let me know - email me at gradon at designboston dot org!

Hello! my name's Santiago Morahan and I'm a 28-year old designer from Parana, Argentina.
I found your blog very interesting and I'd really like to contribute.
My medium is making furniture and office utensils with recycled materials, especially cardboard. I have a deep interest and commitment for green design, since I find that technology, form and function are not the only components of a design object: now you have to add sustainability as well.
My blog's URL is

http://disenocartonero.blogspot.com

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me. I really hope to hear from you soon! Later!

A quality website design can help your website seek the required attention from the customers. At the same time, it also gives you the confidence that you are projecting your products/services in the best possible way. You can hire the services of a good web design company for that perfect result. http://www.infysolutions.com

The Gypsum Works are getting popular with the passage of time. Most of the engineers prefer using this matter for constructing the inner walls. After the gypsum is CALCINED, it is hydrated to remove the water from the natural mineral. The Gypsum drywall is normally referred as the sheet rocks, gypsum wallboard, and the Gypsum Malta. The drywall is very easy in installation, so that is another advantage of this construction material. It consists of about 90% of the mineral and about 10% of the water. The Gypsum Works are really flourishing the architectural work.
