Miloh's 1st quarter of his first year in numbers.

I've always had a thing for numbers, which is why I do these infographics, but I haven't taken a math class since the second day of senior year of high school. At the time I was given a small math problem and here it is: Kenny can get college credit for a math class or he can drop the class and go home early because it's his last class of the day.

I chose wisely. And all my teachers said I would need math in my later life. It can be argued that I used it all the time in photography...in fact in college I wrote a paper on how photography is math in order to get out of my math credits (I had a ton of science credits, including astrophysics so it wasn't like I was a slacker.) But really the teachers were wrong...I don't need to use math because I have a sister who is  Statistics and Math Professor at Ohio State University. If I have a math question she's only 10 digits away (she would probably want me to point out that it's actually 11 digits because of the 1)


So when I wanted to come up with some stats for Miloh's Q1 of Year One she helped me out...so in a way this is a bit of a guest post from her. I should note that I added some stats of my own, based on equations she gave me, but if any percentage is wrong here it's me that got it wrong not her.

  1. I love this! I love infographics and data tracking. My biggest design crush is Nicholas Felton. And my favorite thing to design (and I'm now making a living designing wedding invitations) is the financials section in an annual report.

  7. I have ideas planned out for the whole first year (I'm thinking 2 more styles of them...maybe more if I get bored) but I'd love away to figure out how to continue forever. How many times he tells me I'm not funny, How many times we embarrass him and all that stuff.

Response to a comment about breastfeeding

Since I'm a dude and unable to produce milk from I never thought I woul have to defend the reason we formula feed instead of breast feed. But I received a comment on a recent post so I thought I would talk about it here. I'll get to the why we don't later but I'll start off on a tangent. First off I don't want to alienate the person who asked the comment because they say they are a reader and I'm cool with anyone stopping by. But I can't call the person out anyway because the comment was anonymous...and here is where I go into a little bit of a rant, and if you follow me on twitter you know I'm a fan of the rant. I'm assuming the comment was anonymous on purpose. Perhaps the person is a friend or someone I follow on twitter. Maybe they didn't want to ruin that relationship by coming out and saying it. I'm  a big boy and can handle criticism. Anonymous comments are never things like "Where did you get that cool toy?" they ar

Giveaway Gear Thursday: Paper Culture ($25 coupon code)

Gear Thursday is back this week with a giveaway from a great company called Paper Culture and I'm giving away $25 coupon codes to two different winners. I found Paper Culture on my search for some really well designed birth announcements. Being a designer I probably should have designed them myself but the chaos of a new baby made that impossible. When I saw their announcements I was psyched...we ordered the one below. We were super happy we went with them over some of the other places we've found. A few reasons for that...their designs are great and pretty much the style I would have designed, they are printed on really nice stock (a matte 130lb thick paper), the cards have rounded corners which makes them look nicer and real people lay out your cards. That last one was kind of important to me. You plug in your info and a designer lays it out and sends you a proof in a couple days. You can OK it, make a change or decide not to go with it...there is no obligation. Everyon

My hundredth post: seriously a clips post?

In my last post I mentioned I was working on getting some celebs for this post. I was in talks with the quarterback of the Saints whatever his name is...I'm sure I could look it up. I was also trying to get Conan...those talks were going really well but then NBC squashed it. There were more but the moral is it's just me. So I thought I'd do a clips post to show my journey from dude who was scared of kids to dad. If you're new to my blog this will be a CliffsNotes version of what you missed. If you've been checking it out for awhile think of this as a best of. And since a blog can't work like a TV show if you want to get the full clip show experience you'll have to click through to the posts...but this will give you the gist. In the beginning...Staci and I wanted to have a child but we both had totally different experience with kids. Kids have always been magically attracted to her...which is probably why she is so great at her career as a Montessori teac
