TED 2017 conference “The Future You” I have attended over 20 TED conferences that have spanned 4 decades starting in 1984. I have captured countless ideas in my sketchbooks over the years.

“Humanity’s true moral test, its fundamental test… consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals.” –Milan Kundera We love our pets here at Willoughby.

AIGA and Google’s first annual Design Census 2016 is complete. Our team at Willoughby took the results and compared female to male respondents who reported earning $15,000 or more annually at four levels along their career paths: Junior, Mid-Level, Senior and Leadership.
We’re wrappin’ up the holidays with our annual gift tags and have some tips to share!
In case you haven’t noticed, we have a thing for holiday cards with a reuse element. Gift tags one year, bottle tags the next. It’s been such a merry project we decided to keep it going with a redesign for 2016.
We were recently honored by the Kansas City Chapter of AIGA with three awards at their 12th Annual Design Awards, otherwise known as AXII. Many thanks to the jurors and to our peers. We truly love our design community. Where else can you win awards for dabbling in politics, advancing education and drinking wine?

To Mr. Spiekermann for your help with our new Neenah Promo Book– Danke schön!
Willoughby designer Kevin Garrison channels his fervor for the democratic process in a series he calls, DEMOCRAZY.
We just completed the last of a series of four TV spots for Lyric Opera of Kansas City. This :30 spot for the opera, Carmen, is probably our favorite.
We believe in paying it forward, so for the past couple of years we’ve sent out Holiday cards that have a dual purpose. No recycling bin needed!
