“Please realize that school is not your life, it is simply a supplement for all the things you dream of doing. It is not the dream.”
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!
