“I want to be a designer because…” 2009 edition

Why do I update these in August instead of at the start of the year? The first time someone asked me to answer the question was during my first week of design education. So, being weird like this, I’ve decided to answer it the same time every year.

“Complete this statement every year while limiting your answer to 15 words or less.”

I want to be a designer because….
… practicing design helps me understand the world and how I can improve it.

(Thanks to Brett for putting this bug in my head.)

External Validation Never Hurts

If I can turn on the personal hype machine for a moment…

I have been accepted as a Professional Member of the IDSA, which means I can put “, IDSA” after my name. Ok, so it’s not probably not a huge deal for people with traditional ID degrees, but it’s a nice bit of external validation from a respected organization for my unusual educational and professional work.

Now if I can just learn to throw the IDSA gang sign without breaking my Intuous stylus.
