Goodbye Logic+Emotion, Hello Armano Design Group

This will be the last blog post I'll write on this Website. Let me take a step back. In February of 2006, before TikTok, Snap, Facebook, and Twitter, there was a form of social media built on the open Web where like-minded people found others like them, (as well as audiences). They were called blogs.  I picked a weekend during this coldest of months...

The Mentor / Mentee Value Exchange

Originally posted on David by Design For the past five years or so, I have been informally mentoring people. I’m happy to report that some of the earliest are ridiculously successful and I still keep in touch. I’m also a mentee to a few people I look up to. Here’s what I’ve learned so far: Understand Your Motivation Before You Become A Mentor or...

Six Thoughts On Career Transition

This past week I “celebrated” a year of career transition. It seems like a strange thing to celebrate as I didn’t find career transition, it found me. But unless you’re one of those rare creatures in life where everything goes according to plan — a career transition is just like one of any other’s life curveballs like the end of a relationship, or an...

A Year of Personal Disruption

On an evening in March (you know, the night), I knew something had changed significantly but, like many others, couldn't see past the fog of shock. At the time, I was watching in real-time as the NBA canceled games, the government canceled flights, and Tom Hanks canceled our collective Covid bubble—and despite what was unfolding before my very eyes,...

An Open Letter To My Younger Self

Hi, it's me.  You don't know me, but in time you will. I have the benefit of time and experience on my side and wanted to share some thoughts with you if you're willing to listen. If you receive this, please know that it comes from a good place.  Let's talk about that time in high school when you ran with the cool kids for a short while before they...

What They Don't Tell You About Life "In-Between"

It's been just over three months since I've had a place of full-time employment to call home. As I previously mentioned, this has been a first-time experience having gone from one professional opportunity to another without much of a break in between. Like much in life, there always seems to be discrepancies between what you envision vs. how reality...

My New Normal

Friday will be my last day at the labor of love of a company where I spent nearly eleven years working with some of the brightest minds, world-class clients, and companies this planet has to offer. Like many others, COVID-19 and the economic fallout it causes has come knocking directly on my door, co-mingled with a backdrop of social unrest and palpable...

This Too Shall Pass

In my younger years, I found myself working at a digital agency during the height of the dotcom bubble burst. This was the early 2000s. We closed offices, let people go and grappled with the fact that the economy we helped build in code seemed to crumble before our very eyes. It was humbling, to say the least. During these same years, we also endured...

Investing In The Future Is Investing In Yourself

Recently, I spent an hour with a colleague who is just starting out in his career and wanted to learn more about what I do, how I do it and how he can apply that knowledge to his exploration of a career path. If you have the opportunity to have conversations like these—you should take them. First, because if your professional life has been good to...

The Gift of Saying No

If I’m really being honest with myself, one of my greatest opportunities for career development is that I say yes too much. It is, in fact, possible to say yes too much. I’ve gotten much better at selectively saying no over the years, but I still have to work at it. There are many good reasons why we say yes too much: -We want to be helpful -We...
