What a relief you feel when you find that one thing that helps you make sense of the world. For me, it’s always been writing stuff down, whether I knew it or not. I watch, I listen, and I take time to sort through all the noise—on paper— until I find out which signals produce real emotional reactions. Fun hobby, right? Well it turns out the same process applies to my work. I listen to what a client wants, and before I design anything, I do my best to figure out what feeling we are trying to evoke. All told, I want to make things that move people.
