HOW DESIGN CAN TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE AND MAYBE EVEN THE WORLD

Design is all about optimism, action, and unlimited possibilities. This enriching little post wraps up my hectic week in a nice way. TGIF.

1. A designer does not have the luxury of cynicism.


2. It is easier to react than to create.

3. You must keep moving away from what you know.

4. A designer's gotta have the guts to be truthful at all times.


5. People don't fund problems, they fund solutions.

6. Many believe the world just is. Designers believe we can make the world be.

7. It can be helpful to think about an idea from a point of view that makes no sense.

8. Through the act of making things, we discover ideas.

9. When you're totally unqualified for a job, that's when you do your best work.

10. The goal is to be an expert coming out, not going in.

11. To bring about real change, you have to kiss a lot of frogs.

12. When the world isn't working well, you have the makings of a great design project.

I bought the book Glimmer. It's a very good book for those who are interested in reading about good design and designers' points of view on the subject.
