It is my belief that “Good Design” is not a praxis to be simply taught and consequently studied; nor should it be blindly, listlessly or thoughtlessly imparted. “Good Design” is rather a philosophy to be utilized by those wishing to partake in passionate and fervent living.
When it comes to undertaking a new project, I go where the concept leads me. I feel that if this is done from a purest perspective then a project will never go awry. The way I see it every project is an opportunity for a new adventure and new artistic discoveries - nuances and subtleties are what make the difference between a simple occupiable space, and an exuberantly inspiring experience.
