GOOD PROJECTS FOLLOW THEIR OWN RHYTHMS, WHICH ARE OFTEN INSCRUTABLE AND CAN RARELY BE PLANNED.
— Alberto Alessi
Part of the job of a designer is to bring people with you. Listen to everyone. Engage everyone. Meet with them and show them your iterations. Your mood boards. Your ideas in rough, ugly, unpolished form. This may make more work for you. It will make more work for you. But it will make better work and it will make others want to work with you.

All humans understand design. Trend. Editorial voice. This is not rocket science. It’s art. Art is for everyone. Design, too.

The speed at which people expect newness is quite taxing; it’s turned it into almost a fashion cycle – or even faster. People want novelties so often. There isn’t really time for new styles to emerge and mature and take roots, really. It is a great tool for accessibility, but not a particularly great one for allowing things to develop and enrich.
