Solving design problems
Design is a life philosophy, of sorts. It’s about meeting problems head-on and solving them – and asking lots of questions lies at the heart of the solution. Logic, deduction and reasoning lead you to your conclusion. When I’m given a new assignment, instead of diving in and coming up with something similar to what I’ve done before, I’ll gather reference for the project to use as a guide. Then I ask myself broad, general questions, and once those are answered logically I’ll tackle the specifics. The design soon starts to solve itself.
