Besides being the managing editor of this blog, I'm also a drummer, a husband, and a father, not necessarily in that order. I love good stories, and great design, and I probably quote the Office more than I should but less than I could.

The Photo that Makes Kelly Smile and Think About Family

Fracture is lucky to have Kelly Logan as a photography intern this semester. Whether she is photographing our products or showing us the photography work she does outside of Fracture, Kelly never fails to amaze us with her skills. She recently placed a Fracture order and we would love to share more about the story behind her photo. Tell us about where and when this was taken. I took this photo outside my sister’s house in Montana.  We were leaving …

I’m not a developer, but really interested in app development, and the way Apple and other big tech companies grow and change. As such, I’ve become a big fan of the Accidental Tech Podcast. They really got me with their reference to the “load-bearing pinky” (about holding your iPhone to use your thumb to tap the top row of apps.) Recently one of the hosts …

Forget Monday! At Fracture EVERY Day is Green.

Yesterday was “Green Monday”, the newest sibling in the retail holiday shopping days. While we applaud the candor of the day being named after money, it honestly made us think about how focused we are on another kind of Green. Nope. Not that either. #smh Fracture is passionate about maximizing the eco-friendliness of our company and our products.
