All Pro Team!
There are no creative whimps here. Our awesomeness starts with the first…
An artist is not paid for his labor but for his vision.
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
When you’re curious, you find lots of interesting things to do.
The ultimate inspiration is the deadline.
The essential part of creativity is not being afraid to fail.
Simple is good.
If design isn’t profitable, then it’s art.
This world is but a canvas to our imagination.
Accessible design is good design.
Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.
Design is a fundamental human activity, relevant and useful to everyone.
The life of a designer is a life of fight: fight against the ugliness.
Design is the contrast of the core of limitations therefore there are no boundaries. It is simply an interpretation of creativity.
You have to be interested in culture to design for it.
As social media grows and matures, showing a return becomes critical.
Real web designers write code. Always have, always will.
Every great design begins with an even better story
Art is the lie that reveals the truth.
Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose.
You don’t take a photograph, you make it.
In nature, light creates the colour. In the picture, colour creates the light.
Design is thinking made visual.
You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.
Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
Art, like morality, consists of drawing the line somewhere.
Whenever something is engineered as complex, it is designed to keep you simple.
Art is solving problems that cannot be formulated before they have been solved. The shaping of the question is part of the answer.
Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.
The function of design is letting design function.
