I love the work of Ladies and Gentlemen Studio. I was at SAM shop the other day, and everything that caught my eye was from them. Their products seamlessly integrate old-world feel with modern times.
I’m so lucky to be living in a city filled with such creative minds.

I will make myself a poster for my work area of Dieter Ram’s Principles of Good Design. It’s a great reminder to know how to design things.
However, I personally learn more when I’m told what NOT to do. Has anyone ever made a list of Principles of Bad Design? What are the main guidelines on how NOT to design things? I think that this is where designers should start. Ask ourselves first, “what should I not do while designing this product?”
Bad design is everywhere. By analyzing what isn’t working with a certain product we can make it better. How can we innovate if we don’t know what’s wrong right?

What’s that saying about walking a mile in someone else’s shoes?
Sometimes designers tend to forget this quote, and it leads to a sort of self-centered design.
How can we design for a user if we don’t know how that user feels, or how they use a product.
If you’re designing real functional products even just as simple as a worker’s uniform, and you have not spent at least a few days working that job I think your design will most likely fail.
Just something to consider.

I finally got the time to finish a decent design resume! Looking at it now, I realized I forgot to write some essential web skills such as HTML,CSS,PHP, and MySQL. I will have to make a post-it note about that, because I cant be bothered with it right now, if I keep going I will never finish it. Time limits and deadlines are good! I should have the .pdf file up on my website by the end of the week, so if anyone know of any freelancing gig let me know!

2.1 Billion People is the population of cyberspace, did anyone do a research on multiple personalities? I can’t be the only person there with multiple email address for example. How do they really count this?
