Hi Mike, Great advice and motivation. Good points about living in the world we create, it’s easy to not think critically or creatively when we can just copy what we see from the design galleries. There is something to be said about standing out from the crowd.

However, what happens when we all stand out, that uniqueness will eventually become the norm, and to break it we may find ourselves going in circles.

I believe it was Paul Rand who made this quote famous : “Don’t try to be original. Just try to be good.”, quoting Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

Let’s not push boundaries and be original for originality sake. After all “…design is not good design if it is irrelevant.” – Paul Rand (again)
