Nice blogging (in English) from Malofiej in Pamplona, Spain (March 25-30). I wish I could have seen the presentation by Matt Ericson of The New York Times.

Our favorite analogy was from Shan Carter in online graphics at nytimes.com (and our former colleague at The Merc), who says that he’s trying to build work for “both Bart and Lisa Simpson,” meaning that it can be surface and simple (like Bart) or deeper and thoughtful (like Lisa). It’s a good way to think about making work that appeals to two very different kinds of readers.
