Everyone can use a friend. Use this time to call your loved ones and check in on them! Social distancing doesn’t have to mean being anti-social.

Try Zoom, Skype, Facetime, or even Google Slides. There are

so many ways to stay connected.

Collaboration is the process of two or more people or organizations working together to complete a task or achieve a goal. Collaboration is similar to cooperation. Most collaboration requires leadership, although the form of leadership can be social within a decentralized and egalitarian group.

HUMANS ARE THE ONLY SPECIES THAT CAN ABSTRACTLY THINK. KNOWING THIS WE MUST QUESTION EVERYTHING. SCHOOLS OF THOUGHT THAT NO LONGER SERVE US MUST BE REEVALUATED.

EXHAUST ALL FACETS OF A TOPIC. TURN IT OVER AND INSPECT ALL SIDES WITH A FINE TOOTH COMB.

AS DESIGNERS WE ARE AT A CROSSROAD. COMPLACENCY

IS DENIAL. DENIAL IS THE

DEATH OF PROGRESS.

THE DESIGNER MUST SHIFT

FROM BEING A PERFORMER TO BEING A CONDUCTOR OF TASKS, EFFECTIVELY ORCHESTRATING CHANGE ON ALL FRONTS.
