I recognize myself as a real world designer in part due to a rounded process of approaching a design problem – first defining an opportunity, then understanding the realities of that opportunity and what they mean moving forward with the project. Realities such as financing, manufacturing methods, user interaction, marketing needs, project deadlines, prototyping, testing and research are just a few of the ‘hiccups’ we may face during a project. However, any challenge we come up against can be navigated or even dismissed all together with proper planning and execution. That’s all design is after all, right? Planning for an outcome, then making it happen.
Perhaps I am over simplifying things here, but I truly believe that design goes deeper than just a subtle curved line…however beautiful that curve may be. I believe that design, and more importantly critical thinking in the context of design, can be used in every aspect of daily life and business as a change agent. It is designing with intent and purpose to makes good things great and great things even better.
I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit to my little space on the internet. Please leave a comment, like a post, spread the word. If you would like a detailed resume, let me know and I will be more than happy to pass it along.
