Stop the presses! Kiwi Creative has been chosen for the first-ever group of HOW Design Ambassadors.
(For all of you non-designers—or graphic artists who have been living under a rock—the HOW brand is best known for it's kick-ass design magazine that's a practical mix of essential business information, up-to-date technology tips, the creative whys and hows behind noteworthy projects, and profiles of professionals who are influencing design. But they also publish books, run a resource-filled website, maintain a design-a-rific blog and put on design conferences.)
How were you chosen to be a HOW Design Ambassador? Why, because of this wonderful blog, of course. We applied for this honor a few months back and apparently the powers who be over at HOW liked our quirky sense of humor.
What does it mean to be a HOW Design Ambassador? Well, in addition to getting the exclusive rights to use this nifty li'l badge on our blog, we'll also be getting exclusive previews of new books/magazines/videos. (And who doesn't love freebies?) The folks over at HOW will also interview us from time to time to include our opinion in articles that they write. Oh, and they said that there would "other surprise" throughout the year…giddy with excitement to see what that could mean!
Who else is a HOW Design Ambassador? The official announcement w/ bios is coming soon from HOW, but here's a quick shout out to our fellow ambassadors: Graphicology, Crystal Ink, CBX Strategic Branding, Creative Pile, Thee Blog, Elements Design, Ever So Lovely, Helium Design Co. and Salvatier Studios. (In case you're counting, that would be ten total.)
