Pixar @ the MoMA & prototyping b/c we design time.

Hey there fellow designers,

I wanted to encourage anyone who is in or near the NYC area, to make your
way to the Museum of Modern Art's exhibit, Pixar: 20 Years of Animation.


The exhibit is fun for anyone who appreciates these movies, but for
designers it is also a stark telling of the design process they use and
tells a story for us to think about emulating.
