Design is meditative. Therapeutic. It’s about the nearly audible humming sound in my ears when typography is balanced and everything is composed just so. It’s the joy and confidence that comes with being able to do something that not many others can do as well. It feels like contributing to the rightness of the world, creating order from chaos.
The defining characteristic of designers is that they are eternally optimistic but continually dissatisfied.
I hope I am never satisfied creatively because at that point, the switches will have turned off either in my mind or worse, in my heart. I want to always be creating, always be composing, always be synthesizing ideas, and always be making sense of the world around me.
A great design can be a terrible solution.
