Following with the theme of going beyond merely thinking out-side-the-box and stepping out of it completely, I wanted to share some fantastic design blogs with you all. Designers have that amazing ability to become their audiences and develop products that provide real benefits. There’s a lot to be learned here. Another piece of homework for account folks is to walk over and take a creative out for a few beers. Try wearing their glasses – even the fake ones some wear for show – and look at the world from another perspective. For students I encourage trying to expose yourself to as many new ideas and people as possible before your work becomes your life.
I will also be publishing a series of articles written by real designers.
