The fact of the matter is, if you are a designer, and admirer of design, or someone trying to learn more about it, one thing is for sure- it is almost impossible to define. Its transient nature, its ambiguity and yet pervasiveness, has inspired me to dedicate my life to it's study. As an artistic, visual person attempting to make a living doing what I love, it is very difficult to decide where to focus my creativity. The barrage of media messages and the faster-than-light information rate exchange usually leaves me in a stupor at the end of the day. Trying to harness the power of communication and infuse it with meaningful insights and an artistic sensibility is no small task. So, here we will explore the essence of design. This blog will be at once an homage to those amazing entrepreneurs that shape the industry, a collection of inspirational influences, a philosophical rambling, and a self-gratifying exercise in self-definition. Hopefully we will all learn something along the way. Welcome!
