As designers, our reality is to manage the increasingly elaborate contexts for which we design. We must address various scales, at increased complexity, to solve at a higher, systems level — even when designing individual components — in order to provide anticipated solutions for future problems.
“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” We wholeheartedly agree with Steve Jobs’ sentiment, so here at The Layman’s Almanac, we interview as many disparate view points from leaders, artists and design thinkers as we can.
We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.David Kim
