Well here I go starting my Blog! I hope you can all look forward to fun photos interesting design tips and just a little more insight about "Michael Newsom the Designer". I try and find the beauty and/or design elements in everything I do - and every where I go. Here is a picture of a coffee shop I went to while visiting my daughter who is a nursing student in Seattle. Its called Storyville and it had really terrific interiors and fantastic branding. Oh... and the coffee wasn't bad either!
