Brent


Not many people know that, but while my daughter's room looks more or less like this one, in a parallel universe I'm the coolest dad alive. Over there, on planet Shmearth, I draw happy murals on my kids' walls, I design the invitations for my kids' birthday parties, and--generally thinking of the world as potentially-beautiful--I never miss an opportunity to make it a more colorful place for the next generation.

Until I find the space/time wormhole, though, I'll have to live vicariously through Brent's Designer Daddy blog.

Other than design-related posts, Brent writes about media portrayals of fatherhood, adoption, and two-dads families, as well as more personal posts about his experience as a father of a two-year-old.

As usual, I love linking to blogs that should be at least as popular as those featured on the Babble bubble. I hope I get you to visit the blog and maybe find your own inner designer-parent. Or at least your inner-designer-parallel-universe-parent.

  1. Aw man! It ate my comment!!!!! I think I had claimed to have made really intricate bday party invites just like that...but then I remembered that I don't let my kids have birthday parties anymore. So I guess it wasn't me. Well, try two on the commenting. It told me that I was not qualified to comment or something like that. :-(

  2. Thanks for the awesome write-up! I think it's great to use some of your time and web presence to promote other dad bloggers. We gotta stick together!

    I do something similar called "DDQ&A" where I interview other Designer Dads. http://thedesignerdaddy.com/category/ddqa/

    Thanks again!

  4. Jill, sorry. Not the first time Blogger eats your comment, is it? I did try Wordpress once, but it looks like I'm a Blogger Forever. At least that's what my butt-tattoo says.

  5. Designer Daddy, that's cool. This blog started with just featuring other blogs, but I've gradually moved to (also) writing about other stuff. Because I'm a loud-mouth and for every friend I make on the blog I feel I have to make three enemies...

  6. Having that huge space is great when she turns to a teenager but for babies a white space is just like a hospital scenario.

  7. Your kids' room needs some updating if that is somewhat the real color of it. LOL

  8. If only your child can speak that she wants some color in her room.... She would.

  13. The more busy we parents are the more chaotic our child's room look. I also don't have too much art in my body and I think it reflects in their room. LOL
