Free Advice

I was just wandering around the blogosphere, looking for good design-related blogs (nominate your favorites here), and found this collection of advice from designers, collected by Ellen Lupton, the curator of contemporary design at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum and a professor of graphic design at Maryland Institute College of Art. A few I liked:

  • Turn spectators into collaborators.
  • Graphic design is the spit and polish but not the shoe.
  • Comfort is overrated.
