A creative dumping ground for issues that interest me personally and professionally, with the thought they may interest you too. Issues such as the business of design, the design of business, the design of objects, design strategy, creative direction, innovation, creativity, thought leadership, observations, as well as recommendations, mid-century modern decorative arts and architecture, and the state of my thinking (and currently the state of my heart).

Football’s Ferguson. Design’s Bierut. See A Thread?

Do you see what I’m getting at? Being interested in stuff matters. And it keeps on mattering even when you’re as successful as Ferguson. Knowing your industry, being really, genuinely passionate about your industry matters. It really matters. Both these men are senior in their fields. Both of them have achieved enough to sit back and take the plaudits. Both don’t do that. Both of them have a passion for their work. Do you think it’s a coincidence they’re both still successful?
What threads can be found and conclusions drawn by comparing a UK football player/coach and a US communication designer—both who are at the top of their game? I recommend you read this article to find out (as well as any post by the two resources below).
