Law Alsobrook discusses at TED that design creates purpose and is a way of being.
He gives some great insights in here and stresses that designers are problem solvers. Graphic designers create a way for people to visually communicate and is a superb form of expression. This helps me delve deeper into the underlying emotions and desires of a graphic designer and helps answer what it takes to create one. That being someone who is a deep thinker and who seeks to solves problems, to create understanding through their work.
Its good to once again be reviewing what creates a graphic designer rather than looking over websites, its helping to ground me back in what I want to create rather than worrying over typefaces.
