Woke up this morning and designed the universe illustration because i love this quote by Muriel Rukeyser
Sometimes its good to do a bit different then doing a regular work that refresh your energy. What do you think?
Ayse Birsel views on why your life is your most important project. Interesting thoughts!
Collaboration, in its most basic form, is the collective process of creation, problem-solving, and achieving a common goal. But how we collaborate—both physically and virtually—varies greatly. Over the course of a year, Herman Miller’s Insight and Exploration team observed various workplaces to analyze how people collaborate and the ways in which their interactions vary over the course of a day, and throughout the life of a project. By differentiating the subtleties of how, when, where, and why people connect.
No matter what kind of work you do, or if you do it alone or together, this is how work gets done. In every workplace around the world you’ll find people engaged in the following 10 activities.
I would say a very thoughtful research done by Hermanmiller on Collaboration.

“Connecting” documentary is an exploration of the future of Interaction Design and User Experience from some of the industry’s thought leaders.
As the role of software is catapulting forward, Interaction Design is seen to be not only increasing in importance dramatically, but also expected to play a leading role in shaping the coming “Internet of things.” Ultimately, when the digital and physical worlds become one, humans along with technology are potentially on the path to becoming a “super organism” capable of influencing and enabling a broad spectrum of new behaviors in the world.
Few sketches i did during my vacation in Goa, India. Some times its good to take break from routine life to see the natural beauty around.
Wish you all happy and blissful new year ahead. 🙂
The investigative design process moves from the inside out: “The correct shape is the shape of the object’s meaning.” The Vignelli commitment to the correctness of a design has taken their work beyond the mechanical exercise of devising a form best suited to a given function. They’ve always understood that design itself, in the abstract, could and should be an integral part of function. More than a process and a result, design—good design—is an imperative. “Everything has its own order,” they’ve said. “You can’t take a piece of music and scramble the notes. You can’t take a piece of writing and scramble the words. You can’t take a space and scramble the chairs around.”
Beautiful thoughts by Massimo Vignelli
We appreciate that less is usually more, yet stuff our sites to bursting point, failing to be economical with what we have.
We must know when to stop, and when to throw things out. We should embrace simplicity and subtlety, and exploit the invisible.
Through timeless lessons and practical examples, learn how reduction and restraint can improve communication, emotion, and experience in our designs, with a philosophy applicable to every aspect of the systems we produce.
