Writing

A different way of expression

Blog. Journal. Newsletter. Whatever you want to call it, this space is where I can get all deep and meaningful about things that I'm thinking about. 

I'm interested in social design and design for purpose. In my writing I try to wrap my head around these concepts and what they mean to me. I also try to write about the graphic design industry as it is, women in design and what I'm thinking and feeling about current events and global politics. 

While that all sounds a bit doom and gloom, heavy on the angst, I'm hoping that writing about these things will help me see the positives in situations that seem to be only negative. 

I'm not pretending that I'm a particularly skilled writer, but I do think that it's important for designers to be able to express themselves in words so this is also an exercise in practising something other than visual language.
