NEED HELP WITH STUDY ABOUT LGBT INDIVIDUALS

Hello! A Ph.D. student from my school’s Psychology department has asked me to post their study about how people perceive reactions to a disclosure of a concealable stigmatized identity, specifically lesbian, gay, and bisexual. If you identify as such, please take THIS SURVEY! It takes about 10 minutes to take the survey. If yall have any questions, email Lisa M. Huang at lmhuang@ucdavis.edu. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!

Creative Laziness

I want this book:

Writing on laziness seen as a creative tool, covering the topics of technology, invention, and art. The book plays with the notion of laziness itself, using standard format and system fonts.

It’s a self-publication by K I M a design studio based in France, run by Thomas Kim and Lisa Huang. Thomas also contributes to the terrific Qualité Graphique Garantie site one of my favorite blogs.
