I often talk about how important the act of reading is to a designer. I don’t have many platforms or soap boxes that I get on regularly, but the importance of staying current and understanding our place in the stream of time through continued education is one of them.
“I don’t like to read” are some of the most painful words I hear uttered on a semi-regular basis.
I love over hearing student conversations when I’m in the classroom. Those moments when a student discovers and connects with a designer, or a technique, or a process is always exhilarating.
