Coudal Partners’ Jim Coudal talks design, how his firm changed … and Houston Astros uniforms

My friend Steve Delahoyde (and husband of fellow WBEZ blogger Claire Zulkey) works at the Chicago design firm Coudal Partners. And every time I asked him what the company does, he’d give me a bunch of examples — a short film he’d shot, an online design tournament — but I was still left wondering, “OK, right, but what does the firm really do?”

So, finally, I went to Jim Coudal himself. Here Jim explains things … more or less.
