Surprise! Claudia on Speakerphone

So I went into Hanks office asking to see examples of those great Genesis projects because I didn't get to see them earlier, and just as we were looking at that really cool one (well they're all really cool) but the one that folds out and has great movement and hierarchy and type as texture and all that jazz, Hank calls up the person who designed it and puts her on speakerphone and Dominique, Monica and I got to reminisce with her about those wonderful days when she was in the very same class working on the very same project with the same feelings of excitement, fear and growing pains and whatever other symptoms you might have being in this class.

So to get to my point Claudia had some interesting things to say: when reading the Genesis pick out that little gem that tugs at your soul strings if you know what I mean and develop a story from there, not just any story, one with a little meat to it, one that will make sunday interesting. Oh yeah, and step back from all those layouts and thumbnails and look at your spreads as if they were a canvas and you are the painter but you're also a musician strumming your soul strings.
 - thats all thanks
