• Repeat Yourself

if you like something, do it again, and again. if you don’t like something, do it again.

  • Forge your own Tools

tools amplify our capacities, so even a small tool can make a big difference. even simple tools that are your own can yield new avenues of understanding.

  • Stand on Someone’s Shoulders

you’ll go farther being carried on the accomplishments of others, plus it’s a better view ahead.

  • Avoid Software

everyone has it.

  • Don’t Clean Your Desk

you may find something in the morning you couldn’t see tonight.

  • Don’t Enter Award Competitions. You good.

they’re not good for you.

  • Read Only Left-Hand Pages

strange i know. Marshall McLuhan did this. cutting the amount of info we take in leaves room for what he called, “our noodle.”

  • Make New Words

Expand a lexicon, demand a new way of thinking by doing so. the new thoughts will demand a new form of expression. that expression demands new conditions. 💎

  • Think With Your Mind

forgot technology. don’t limit creativity to devices. 💎

  • Organization=Liberty

innovation in design happens in context. that context is usually some form of cooperatively managed expertise. the myth of a split between “creatives” and “suits” is what Leonard Cohen calls a “charming artifact of the past.”
