I am a graphic designer and film maker, who loves photography, user experience and pop culture in all its forms. During my professional career I have led teams on community and brochure site redesigns, created mock ups and other assets for on-line properties; worked with outside vendors to develop systems and work flows for on-line content distribution; set standards for best-in-class DVDs and downloadable content; played key roles on various marketing campaigns; and worked in fast paced news environments.
Capitalizing on the buzz around Amazon’s Kindle event last week, competitor Kobo announced a new 7-inch Android tablet and two new e-readers. The Kobo Arc is a potential rival to the Kindle Fire and Google’s Nexus 7. The Kobo Glo is a front-lit e-reader with a 6-inch E Ink screen, Wi-Fi, and 1GB of storage, while the Kobo Mini is a shrunken version of the Canadian company’s popular Kobo Touch, offering similar specs with a 5-inch display.
