Happy Monday, y’all! I’m spending the week teaching design to high school students at a journalism camp in Chapel Hill. I attended this camp when I was in high school, and it’s where I first learned what graphic design. Journalism camp had such a profound effect on my life, so it’s such an honor to come back year after year to teach young minds about one of the things I love most. I have posts scheduled throughout the week, but I’ll be taking a bit of a break from social media. I’ll be back in the full swing of things next week!
Today’s Kitchen Road Trip takes us to Minnesota, a state that knows design. I loved researching items for this week’s gift guide — there was so much good stuff from which to choose. I’ve always wanted to visit the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, a museum famous for its exhibits of contemporary visual art and design. Minnesota, also known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, has also had something of a craft brew renaissance in recent years. It’s definitely a state on my ‘to visit’ list! // susannah
