For most of my life (15+ years) I was a camerawoman and video editor.
After an unpredictable event that affected
my balance, I moved to writing, editing,
and graphic design.
In my earning-a-living life as a medical editor, editorial director, and grant writer for teams at Memorial Sloan Kettering, Mt. Sinai Medical Center, the New York Hall of Science, and other organizations, the deadlines were so always-pending and the stakeholders so always nervous that the basic design of the page was something we did quickly as best we could. Not many people wanted the writing to do more than get the money in. But we knew that the quality of the writing, accuracy of the data, and how it looked on the page mattered.
I always wanted the writing to do more, and part of that more—the good page—has to do with how the page looks. This includes the layout of elements, choice of photographs, color palette, typography …
So, for those who write for a living and often only have a little time to think about the layout and typography of a page, this site is a place to drop in and pick up a few things to think about, with resources and other people to search out—there is some great designer writing out there. I am only the tracker to a longer road of wonderful stuff in the world today to look at and to read.
