Welcome! This page collects all the products I’m designing as part of a one-month challenge to myself: making one new product a day for the Groundhog Day Resolutions period of February 2nd to March 3rd. If you’re curious why I’m doing this, the post A February Full of Promises goes into the backstory.
Some of the downloadable designs will be available for free download for only a short time, so I encourage you to grab them now. If you have a suggestion, feel free to leave a comment. Thanks, and enjoy browsing!
A single-sheet weekly planner.
A single-sheet primer for how to follow Groundhog Day Resolutions.
A print-and-cut horizontal strip calendar template.
A new version of the US half-size black-and-white Mini ETP. This is the first step in producing A4 and color variations for digital downloads and a printed version.
The A5-sized version of the black-and-white Mini ETP. The second step toward digital download and printed versions!
For sale on Gumroad: color and black-and-white, with 2013 year and without, 3 kinds of templates, and both A5 and US Half Letter in one $7 package.
A print-ready design candidate, sent to my local full-service printer, Papergraphics, to start the costing process for potential production.
A calendar that highlights all the weekends and fades-out the weekdays. Maybe it’s useful to someone!
Eight of my “operating principles” on an 8-UP business card template, to remind myself of important beliefs that make me who I am.
Added the half-size versions of the ETP to the 365-Day ETP Almanac download, available for $7.
Track time, in six-minute increment, on this legal-sized version of the Emergent Task Timer (not Planner…Timer!)
Use this “Creative Self-Reliance Cootie Catcher” to get through a creative crisis!
By request: a black-and-white optimized version of the 365-day Emergent Task Planner.
Something different: a spaceship trading card for the 12-yo space-crazy version of Dave, circa 1978.
A daily word-counting calendar, based on my NaNoWriMo 2012 calendar design.
A symbolic product: the brand focus for me as someone who is “developing creative independence”.
Cannibalizing the ETP: a source template printable planner kit for Illustrator and Inkscape.
A 4×6″ reference card for understanding how to use your DSLR camera settings, without using “F-STOP” anywhere in the writing.
I’m tired and busy, so this product of the day is the revisions I made to it based on Sid’s feedback. This is the first time feedback was incorporated into a POTD, so that counts as something new (at least for me :)
Kickin’ it old-school swag-style with custom “explore-learn-build-share” mugs from Zazzle and Printfection.
Beginning an experimental search for sponsorship partners to put small advertisements on the free download forms.
A long-overdue update of the “Sales” version of the Concrete Goals Tracker (CGT)
Live Design Sessions!
A primer on the basics behind visual hierarchy. Possible book.
A refresh of a never-released form, the Dream Context Catcher is a “Dream-defining Doodle Worksheet” that you use every week.
A free-to-download draft of a possible Groundhog Day Resolutions blog-to-book. These 60+ pages are a reprinting of the first 10 GHD posts of 2007, the year I started.
Half-sized ETP notebooks prototypes inch closer to production. Take the survey and let me know what you’re looking for.
An art exercise, turned into a poster product!
It came to me in a dream, graph paper with a magical pattern that somehow would bring about different ideas. In practice I think I missed the mark, but it’s an interesting idea.
A physical product, a run of 12 index card blocks at the very beginning of their artisanal journey.
Thus concludes the 30 days of new products! Thanks for following!
