We’re Blowin’ Up!

Wouldn’t surprise me if The Four Slide Sales Pitch contest hit the front page of Digg this next week. Entries are gettin’ outta control so get yours in soonOkay, so Alice is running unopposed so far. Ethan’s comin’ fast up the right side, though.
! Deadline’s midnight PST Friday.
The question’s been asked, where are we selling ourselves? We envisioned a sale pitched at a business college, a teaching college, or somewhere you want to work, somewhere along the lines Chicago GSB’s originally drew, but, sincerely, take it wherever you want. Visceral, intriguing design’s gonna transcend context.

I'm Dan and this is my blog. I'm a former high school math teacher and current head of teaching at Desmos. He / him. More here.


  1. My problem, I’m running against myself, since I’m now up to THREE SLIDESHOWS! I know, I’ve gotta make up my mind, but I’m beginning to sympathize with Imelda Marcos and that shoe thingy (not really, but you get the idea).

  2. Marcie – Your work so reminds me of “Spilling Over: The art of becoming yourself”, a visual journal extraorindaire by Sabrina Wad Harrison that continues to be one of my 5 most valued books of any kind on any shelf for any reason. Esp. your 2nd slide with the journal drawings. Beautiful/intriguing, BTW.

    Good stuff, Marcie!
    Cheers, Christian
