I’m Chanpory, and this is my site on how to live and work better as a designer.

You should follow me on Twitter here.

For more, check out the archives.


If you’re looking for a ridiculously dead-simple blogging tool, check out Posterous.

Just send an email to post@posterous.com, and bam! Instant blog for you and everyone to love. No signups, no special tools, no fancy bells and whistles. It’s perfect for aspiring photo bloggers who don’t need all the extras.

Thomas, our new designer at DDO, just started his own photo blog in less than one minute–using only his iPhone.

Thomas will be participating in Basics in Design program at the legendary Basel School of Design. It’ll be hardcore swiss design action for the summer, and we look forward to getting frequent updates via his new blog.

Thanks to my friend and former boss, Patrick Au-Yeung, for sending this my way.

    That’s strange… and interesting. Seems like more of a Twitter-style service without the 140 character limitations.

    Blogging via email, and only email? That is ingenious. I doubt I’ll use it, but I know plenty of busy co-workers who will definitely try it out.

    Thanks for the early blog and for sending users our way early. For the record, LifeClever was THE first major blog mention for posterous (beating out ReadWriteWeb, TechCrunch, Newsweek, Huffington Post, Inquisitr, etc.), and we really appreciated it.

    Email blogging, why no body thought of it until now :-) Great idea and good to hear more light blogging service. Might not be suitable for my blog. Thanks LifeClever.
