“When I am working on a problem, I never think about beauty but when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.”
- R. Buckminster Fuller
A common misperception about my profession is that design is what makes things look good. It is understandable why some people might come to this conclusion, but design is not as concerned with beauty as it is in finding solutions to problems. Design is more than some kind of magic frosting. It forces designers to sit in someone else’s shoes and see the problem from many different angles.
There is something about the way I am wired that causes me to be constantly making things. I make cameras. I make websites. I make movies. I make pictures. Somehow all these activities are connected and I think it has something to do with why I enjoy being a graphic designer. I am constantly taking things apart and reimagining the “what” and “why.” I love finding a new purpose for an old object. I love when unrelated ideas overlap and something new is created. I enjoy seeing the results of making things better. Being a graphic designer is more than a career choice; it is what I am.
