A few weeks ago Jon and I spoke at an event called Create Upstate held in Syracuse, NY. Our talk was called “Principles that Go Against the Grain” and it covered our approach to the business of Web design. As the conference went on, it continued to dawn on me how much talent and integrity there is in Upstate New York. This made me feel proud to be a part of that community. With that said, I made this illustration as my tribute to UPSTNY.
