Stefan Sagmeister is one of the designers that makes me think simply by opening his mouth. I don’t always understand his work. Sometimes I even find it frustrating, and I find it disagrees with my view of design. But when he gives talks, he’s one of the more inspiring design thinkers. His philosophy is what makes him such a great designer, I guess.
In this ted talk, he talks about taking a year off now and then to experiment and grow fond of what you do. Just what you might need on a lifeless Friday in November. And maybe especially on Friday 13th?
