A topic that continues to surface in current theories of perception is the neuroscience of haptics—the science of how touch and tactile information is sent to our brains. As a designer, I’m especially intrigued with how this science impacts comprehension and what it means to us—as humans—to read ink-on-paper, versus absorbing content digitally. How does reading on a computer screen, laptop or mobile device differ from consuming print on paper? And, ultimately, how does the difference influence how we learn and what we learn, or even what we unconsciously choose to digest.

Daniel Dejan discusses his resolutions for 2015

Daniel Dejan breaks the direct mail process into four general steps
Blog

Are you a list maker? I love lists. They remind me of what I need to do, how I should prioritize my time, and what promises I’ve made. In other words, they keep me on track.

I’ve spent a great deal of time this year focusing on direct mail. Direct mail campaigns can display some of the most creative and successful uses of paper and print. And, even more importantly, they are proven to perform better than online activities!
