      D.A.D is a blog for Dads;

      Dads who have a passion for design.

      Dads who champion independent, entreprenurial spirit.

      Dads who are continually inspired by their kids.

      Dads whose way of working has changed since the arrival of children.

      Dads who can’t remember what they used to do with all their spare time.

      Dads who are juggling deadlines with bedtimes.

      Dads whose coffee consumption has gone through the roof.

      And dads who need a bit of reassuring that they’re not alone.

      Our criteria is simple – we’re looking for cool, design-led content for kids and interesting stories about what it is to be a 21st Century dad.

      As designers we love great pics, so the better the images the more chance there is in us publishing the story.
