Old Gold

Design, music and oddball

Old Gold is your regular opportunity to stay connected to everything I’m looking at, contemplating and enjoying through the ear and eyeholes. It’s an email newsletter, much like any other, but with twice the soul, three-times the heart and four-times the typos. Join me for design nuggets, musical pannings and oddball discoveries! It promises nothing, but offers the world. Click here to sign up!
