Doghouse on the move

In 2012 I moved home to the family farm in northeast Missouri for many reasons. My father was recovering from back surgery and my mother had a broken wrist so she wasn't able to care for him. Business was slow and my apartment was about to go condo, so back to Missouri I came.
      In time it was clear that my father was having some cognative problems which later would be diagnosed as Altzheimer's. After his death in 2013 I was now taking care of my mother. At the beginning of 2018 she became more than I could care for so she was moved into a nursing home. This leaves Robert once again free to search for freelance design work.

what's new?

The Squirrel's Nut Hut is adding new content for the first time since 2011. What's a "Nut Hut" you ask. It's a happy place where the squirrels that live in Robert's head can comment on the state of the world as they know it.

The Nut list  A call out to those rich and famous folks who behave like complete idiots, "nuts" if you will.
Crimes of Typography  As designers are slowly being replaced by "Design it yourself" software, the rules of typography are getting lost in the dust. Come enjoy some of my favorite typographic faux pas.
Signs of the Apocalypse  Evidence that sometimes fact is funnier than fiction.
Puppypalooza  AKA Robert's happy place. A doggy photo album guaranteed to make the most cynical people smile.
Rant! Rant! Rant!  The final section of the Nut Hut is your basic squirrelly blog, filled with things that make us laugh. It's also a place where we can mouth off about things that just flat out piss us off.
