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).

“He was an extremely important mentor for me. He is well-known for being tough and hot-headed, but also incredibly smart. He showed me a set of operating principles, how to articulate an idea, an impatience with theory and a passion for practical experience. I didn’t learn diplomacy from him, but he taught me the value of telling people the truth and letting them sort things out for themselves.”

Lowell Williams on his legendary mentor Saul Bass
