"I urge each and every one of you to seek out projects that leave the world a better place than you found it. We used to design ways to get to the moon; now we design ways to never have to get out of bed. You have the power to change that."

"I would tell those people they’re not designers. Designers sell their work. Designers get up in front of people and explain why they’ve made the decisions they’ve made, and if you can’t do that, you can’t call yourself a designer. […] Being a designer has very little to do with being creative—you certainly need to have a core creative set, you need to have some talent, but apart from that, you need to be able to sell your work. You need to be able to solve problems and convince people you’ve actually solved that problem. ‘I want to sit here at my desk in front of my large iMac screen and my very expensive headphones on listening to my house music and cranking out beautifully layered Photoshop files that have absolutely nothing to do with this person’s business goals and call myself designer.’ I think ‘designers’ like that make other designers’ jobs a lot harder."

untitled procrastination

As a designer, I find myself flooded with ideas, thoughts, and inspiration.

This is my place to document those findings. From work I've come across, to current personal projects.

All the other odds and ends are found on my other blog.
