Ben Kimball: not a graphic designer, but as photographer/cartographer:
Failures I Learned From
Failures I Learned Nothing From
Intentionally Streaking Things

Mark Blyth: Neat idea!
Stuff that really needs doing
Stuff that I can procrastinate about
Stuff that’ll never need doing
Christine: Mine would be:
