Following History's Trail

Hello! My name is Caitlin and you probably won’t ever really hear me talk about myself too much. I am (currently) 28 years old and somewhat new to blogging. I’ve known about it for a long time, of course, and I remember the dark days of dial-up before blogging even existed, but it’s never been […]

My experience in writing such pieces has taught me that the facts and figures are uninteresting to the general public, it is the people that strike a cord with them.

Sport Archives

From "A" like American football over "F" like football to "Z" like decathlon: the world of sport is diverse.

Evidence 1: As Paul Rand once said, “Good design adds value of some kind, gives meaning, and, not incidentally, can be sheer pleasure to behold; it respects the viewer’s sensibilities and rewards the entrepreneur”, and I believe in that wholeheartedly.
