We’ve been given so many chances to see abundance in our lives. Oftentimes confused as not enough, not what we wanted, not the right time.
This gift is not what I wanted.
I don’t have enough money.
I don’t have the right skillset.
There isn’t enough time for it.
While we can go on and on about what we don’t have, it would help more if we talk about what we already do have, which is probably a lot.
So no, it’s not really about luck. It’s about honesty and perception.
Just because your voice isn’t the loudest doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a place.
In a world so cluttered and messy, perhaps it’s more worth it to be anonymous and consistent, rather than random.
Banksy, rather than Irene Mathews (a made up name).
Focused instead than diluted.
ko-ko-ya, instead of a one-artist-does-all.
More importantly, to create instead of letting ideas mold away.
Having the audacity to say that design is more than pretty graphics and logos (because it is), takes courage and understanding the role of art in culture.
To employ consistency and invisibility in design takes a lot of constraint, because it’s rarely about you.
At the same time, to say that design can play a role in changing someone else’s mind (because it can), needs someone who challenges it consistently.
