I’ve got a crazy week. I had a job interview, I accepted a job offer, I worked for one day and I quit this job. The lesson of this week - sign up the contract before working, otherwise anyone can fool you.
Design is a simple thing that we can all use. Creative thinking for a practical purpose. Being able to imagine a stone as a spearhead, a cave as a house or a rock as part of a wall. It’s a bridge between what something is and what it could be. Between the things we make and how we use them. It’s not the whole story of the world we make around us, but it’s an important part. It’s always been there, helping us progress, and making things work better.
