This month is the 40th Anniversary of the famous Apollo Moon Landing. To celebrate the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum has launched a new website. The goal of the website is to allow visitors to experience the Apollo 11 mission in real time. The website will go live at 2.35pm (GMT) July 16th which is exactly 40 years after the historic launch. Not specifically design related but for anyone with imagination, this is a must.

“Don’t Call Me In the last little while, there has been a MAJOR backslide in the industry. Poor rates have been an issue for a while but things are becoming worse. Clients’ fees are getting even lower and the rights they’re demanding are even higher.
You want examples? How about SWATCH calling me and asking me to design a watch. They wanted a complete transfer of copyright for a paltry fee. As if that’s going to happen. Google calls me and wants my work for their new search engine all over the web, the fee? Nothing. Editorial clients are slashing 1999’s fees almost in half and citing the bad economy as an excuse. You know what? My excuse is that the economy is bad so you have to pay me MORE for an illustration. How’s that for an economic stimulus package?
So here’s to every client with shitty fees and terms. Do not waste my time or contact me. I am very busy working with clients who respect artists and you’re wasting my time with your solicitations. So for you, I give you a special salute that I hope will keep you away because I don’t need your work.”

“The presidency itself is a seemingly immortal and impenetrable institution; by inserting myself in its timeline, I attempt to locate something intimate and mortal.”
