Hi. My name’s Chris Glass. This is a place where I journal with photos and save links for things I don’t want to forget.

The Chapters of Your Life

This started as a brief presentation about intent and photography that my good friend Erik turned into a short film as a birthday surprise during the pandemic.

Creative Mornings Talk

This video from 2013 is long, but lays out who I am and why I think design is awesome. I was nervous as heck through the whole thing.

A few favorite things

Books, movies, video games, music and random other things all mixed together in a visual, sortable grid.

Great Discontent Interview

An old conversation that fills in the blanks of my career and whatnot in an interview format. My tip of the hat to Ryan and Tina for the moment.

A wedding album 62 years in the making

Gastón Abril Rotger embarked on a long project to take tiny photo samples of his mother-in-law's wedding, scan and restore them to be printed large. 62 years after the wedding, Pirucha received her album and the visual storytelling of the moment is touching. So much that the story has been featured on television a few times.

It's over 10 years old, but this animation about design and intention holds up well.

Mediocre ideas, showing up, and persistence.

Chris Coyier just posted a list with 43 items and this nugget was in there. I agree with this simple advice, as showing up for mediocre ideas puts them in front of others to become better. And persistence? A big part of that (for me) is to not spend all my time consuming.

My name’s Chris, this is Edie, and this is a place where I put stuff. In my spare time, I devise schemes to create more spare time. My goal with all this is to remember things, but also try and understand the patterns of life.

(That’s the grand idea — it’s usually just kind of ordinary, and that’s okay too.)
