For the curious among you, Marilyn Scott-Waters was an art director for Nike before she quit to do her own thing (which includes freelance design). If you want to learn more about her, you can read an interview with The Successful Soloist, or take a look at her LiveJournal. (There's also an older Blogger blog with a few entries.)

Now that it is 11 PM and my wife has kept me up past my bedtime taping up little paper baskets and boxes for our daughter I am not finding this website so entertaining. However, I am sure i will be back again, so my earlier compliment still stands.
