In my design mentor’s office there is a bookshelf of design volumes. Early on I picked an interesting book out. Now when I have a little time to kill I stop by and grab this book to read another page.
Here’s a quote from today’s pass, about the diffence between “top-down” and “bottom-up” design.
“Our culture respects the stability and authority of the top- down world and needs the rebellion and immediacy of the bottom-up.”
This intersection of system and grassroots design is interesting, and perhaps an important key to prevent artists from despising other artists.
