Today’s “Daily Bizcard” design, “NYNY”, goes to Nick Denton, the founder and owner of Gawker Media.
The design started life as a “back of business card” doodle I drew back when I lived in Manhattan, circa 1998. Then last year I turned into a fine art print. Recently I was thinking somebody living in New York should have it as their own business card. Who better than Nick Denton?
Nick is one of my old New York blogging posse, from back in the early blogosphere days. I first became aware of him through Elizabeth Spiers, whose long-deceased blog, “Capital Influx” was one of my favorite blogging reads, back circa 2002-2003 (I actually once went on record saying that I thought Capital Influx was one of the top ten coolest blogs of all time. She was VERY good- no wonder Nick hired her.). Soon after I met her online, Gawker.com launched with Elizabeth as its first ever editor, before she later moved on to other things.
