This week on the show we were joined by web and graphic designer Jason Santa Maria. We got a chance to talk to Jason about his work at Happy Cog, his personal work, projects like the Wordpress admin, the differences in designing for print and web, and we got to ask him some listener questions. We also announced the winner of the MyFonts $100 gift certificate. As always, give us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, send us a tweet @rbtlshow, or give us a call at 646-402-5686 ext 20248. We’re always looking for interesting design stories, so call or send them in. For more detailed shownotes, visit http://rbtl.us/post/105125819
