what I think about design

responsive design mock-up

in the ever-changing world

a design is an intent

I believe in process and rapid-prototyping. Pencil and paper are still my primary go-to tools. I love digital, but design starts with the most human traits—an idea. An idea to be shared.

It’s how we work through that initial concept that determines the outcome. Design is informed.
