I love language

I love this word:

"Brooklyn designers became the apotheosis of indie cool (thin portfolios notwithstanding)..."

courtesy of the NYTimes article  "Design Loves a Depression"

I also love that this article is admitting that design became meaninglessly elaborate and flippant in good economic years:
"Form followed frivolity. Function was left off the guest list."

an interesting take on what is to come for us in the future. I hope that my work's form follows function in a sustainable, affordable fashion. Design isn't about awards anymore, it's about audience.
