Two words of optimism and possibility.
I look around and observe that everything we use was first designed. I ponder how someone applied their thought, their skills and collaborated to produce what we see, use and experience. I have a reverence for the craft and dedication this requires.
Over time I’ve become aware that there is an experience we have at a macro level, such as traveling, running errands, or any mundane activity – simply living. Everything we do, and how we do it has multiple levels of design. Where there is friction we can wonder “What if… this was designed better?”
