now I know

By James Caldwell | Published: July 16th, 2014

For those of you who have asked me if I created another Christmas Snowflake book for my nephew, I have. I was just remiss in posting it. As each year passes it gets a little more difficult to create a brand new book and figure out what the idea for the new one should be. However I did complete this fourth book for Nathan, or “Baby Nathan” as I like to refer to him. As usual, this book was fun to work on, but what was different was the fact that an idea for this book came to me rather quickly, unlike my ideas the last few years.

Design For Care

By James Caldwell | Published: July 2nd, 2014

Last year I had an opportunity to work with Peter Jones on a ground breaking book about approaching health care with a human-centered design approach. Many of the methodologies introduced new tools and techniques that would easily improve the lives of patients, allowing them more participation and better interactions with their caregivers and doctors. The book I am referring to is called Design For Care – Innovating Healthcare Experience by Peter H. Jones.

Fun in the Snow

By James Caldwell | Published: December 9th, 2012

Usually my day is filled with similar strategy and branding issues for various companies. But things are slowing down as Christmas approaches even if the snow has yet to fall. For the last two years I have produced a children’s book for my nephew Nathan about the life and times of a snowflake. The first book was about the Life of a Snowflake, and the second dealt with his dreams. Now I am no illustrator but I do the best I can and I think that this year’s book and my third in the series turned out better than ever.

My Dream Time

By James Caldwell | Published: December 2nd, 2011

Well it’s that time of year again and even if the snow hasn’t fallen, Christmas is around the corner. Last year and around this time I made a children’s book for my nephew Nathan about the life of a snowflake. This was the first time I ever attempted to make a book of this type. Influenced by a friend and motivated by my love for my nephew I spent a few weeks coming up with an idea for a series of books. This year I continue the snowflake series.

My Snowy Life

By James Caldwell | Published: December 13th, 2010

A few weeks ago my family and friends gathered together to celebrate my birthday. One of the people in attendance was my friend, Keith Branscombe and with him he brought a book he made about his visit to Cuba. I was immediately intrigued and asked him how it all came about. To make a long story short he said it was his first one but that he had another couple that he was still working on.

BookCamp Toronto 2010

By James Caldwell | Published: May 17th, 2010

My initial thoughts about the day were: “Okay so it is supposed to be the first nice day this week and I am going to BookCamp Toronto 2010 to sit inside Robarts Library all day and listen to and participate in various discussions.” I was conflicted, I really needed a sunny day and I wanted to be outside but thankfully the weather wasn’t nice this day as it turned out to be overcast and even threatened to rain.

ebook nausea

By James Caldwell | Published: April 26th, 2010

I am part of an ebook group that began at OCAD about one year ago. We call our ebook the ‘sbook’, short for ‘smart book’. Our goal is simple: to envision the successor to the printed codex – not so simple.
