Design should inspire peoples and cultures to grow, transform and look to the future

Design is an opportunity to connect with people, listen to their needs and deliver experiences which reflect positively on society and of course the designer. Design should inspire peoples and cultures to grow, transform and look to the future.” - Simone LeAmon

Designers exist to come in, assess what has been failing, and offer up solutions for the future

“The entire profession of design is one rooted in failure, for without it there would be no need for designers. Designers exist to come in, assess what has been failing, and offer up solutions for the future.

The more we design, the more failures we are exposed to, and the better our work becomes in the future for having learned what not to do.” - Brad Nunnally
