Oh the feels. It’s a common theme in many of the efforts that’ve seemed to gain a lot of traction in social media— sincerely portraying the need to connect and create, as enabled via technology (note: not “sharing”).
I’ve seen a common theme among the smartest designers with whom I’ve worked. They all follow the same philosophy that design, when done well, fades to the background and is rarely ever noticed. Everyone cites Dieter Rams or IDEO or the nature of a screw. So few ever cite Google.
Big fan of because-we-can projects. Remind your team that the only limits are their imaginations. Budgets and client directions can be worked around with smarts and good design. (via Survival Kits Help Creatives Get Through The Toughest RFPs [Pics] - PSFK)
The thoroughness and timelessness astounds. (via Design Manual Reveals Rich Graphic Identity of NYC’s Subway System - PSFK)
My apologies to any followers. Working on TEDx NOLA along with work duties has had me a bit tied up. Fret not, though, the inspiration will continue shortly.
What makes a movement? It’s not in the leader, it’s in the first follower and how the leader embraces him/her.
