Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been working with a real-life graphic designer to develop a logo (and eventually a new layout) for Get Rich Slowly.

I didn’t expect them to be crafted by Native Americans, of course, but it was a little surprising to find that they were made in China. I… Continue reading I Don’t Speak Chinese
