Apple, iPhone, and the Shifting of Coolness

There’s a wonderful scene in “Almost Famous” in which Philip Seymour Hoffman tells the teenage aspiring writer/protagonist, “I met you. You are not cool.” I’ve always loved that line, because I feel like what he was really saying was, “You are your own kind of cool.” On my best days, this is how I would describe myself – my own kind of cool. I’m n...

The Designer's Playlist

Silence has always been a distraction for me. I need music or a medley of conversations to help me focus and concentrate.

Few things are better than having a moment of enlightenment – having a new idea presented to you that helps you make sense of your world in a better, simpler, way. That’s what happened to me when I came across a book from the 1960s entitled The Structure of Scientific Revo...

How Wine Tasting and the Gestalt Principles of Perception Improve My Designs

It’s rare for me to meet a Cabernet Sauvignon that I don’t like. My favorites are Cabs with backbone: big and full-bodied. I like my wines earthy (even a little herbaceous [taste and aroma of herbs]) with some tobacco flavor. And I love when the wine finishes dry.
