Revolución de Genero

Grité por mi, por mi mamá que no se anima a unirse a esto, por mis amigas machistas, por mis amigas feministas que no pudieron ir, por las que no conozco que fueron asesinadas, por mis futuros hijos o hijas. Por las que tienen miedo de alzar la voz, por las que no pueden, por tus hijas, por tu hermana, por todas las mujeres del mundo.

Holiday Project

This season I decided to give a handmade gift to my friends and family. I made some watercolor poinsettias to keep the theme inside the holiday spirits. At first my idea was to make bookmarks, since I’ve been practicing clouds on those. But Dirk mentioned that they would look good on the Christmas tree as…

Strong goals, the key to motivation

I’ve been wanting to blog often. I really have, but I find the search for words energy draining. Sometimes I feel like what I have to say to the world might not even be important, but it holds so much significance to me. So why do I hesitate? Why is it so hard to start? Have you ever felt this way? Maybe not specifically about blogging, but maybe you want to enroll in a class, start reading 15 minutes every morning, or take a run on your neighborhood. But why do we spend so much time thinking, and not doing?

Por último, sólo me queda decir: ¡VIVA MÉXICO!

En marzo del 2018 llego una señorita vestida con el uniforme del INE buscándome porque me tocó ser funcionara de casilla en las elecciones 2018. Mi abuelita rápidamente le dijo: “No, aquí no está”. Ella asumió que no me interesaba. Por suerte, ese mismo día acababa de llegar de Guadalajara y a la señorita se le olvido pedir que firmaran comprobando que no estaba. Así que cuando yo llegue del aeropuerto, estaba otra vez en la puerta a lo que se sorprendió que le dije, “Si quiero participar”. Súper contenta me explico unas cosas rápidas y programamos mi capacitación.

A designer’s research manual by O’Grady

A designer’s research manual by Visocky O´Grady, Jenn Grady, Ken Grady has been a game-changing book for me. This book will teach you everything you need to know about researching for design purposes. I enjoyed it very much and did my own little summary to remember what was most important to me. I mixed some techniques, saying I made a new research process would be too naive so I won’t do that. However, I did summarize the contents in a way that makes sense to me and made a research process that works for me. If it works for you too then yay and high-five. I made some graphics to illustrate this process, of course, inspired/based on the illustrations from the book.
