“Good design is as little design as possible”.
Less, but better – because it concentrates on the essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials. Back to purity, back to simplicity.
Dieter Rams – German Industrial Designer
 
Notes from Today’s Episode:
We can learn simplicity from nature and everywhere around us
You can always start where you are with what you have
Work with as little as much clients as possible; the ones who respect you and value your work
If you focus on one area and get good at it, it helps you get good at other areas, Everything we do adds up in some way, even things we think are inconsequential
Stay close to family, get someone you can talk to, get love, love takes care of the stress
Don't dwell on the past, time is forward moving...
Always be grateful for everything you get and where you are
 
Demystifying myths
The misconception and wrong notions we hold about creativity, art and under appreciating the value Creatives bring to the table needs to  be dealt with; design is valuable. You need patience and endurance, Always remember that business and design is problem solving. Functionality is part of design, Design serves its purpose when the end user can actually use it.
