“Swiss Miss” Tina Roth Eisenberg on Eccentric Aunts and Side Projects!
“Swiss Miss” Tina Roth Eisenberg began our first TYPO SF conference today with a talk on “The Power of Side Projects and Eccentric Aunts”. Tina’s own eccentric aunt was a designer who introduced her to the very idea that this thing called design was something that one could do for a living. The swiss miss passed down her own sage advice to the full auditorium with a list of 8 principles.
