It’s no secret that inspiration has a will of its own

It’s no secret that inspiration has a will of its own.

It always seems to hit us at the most awkward possible time, often right when we’re in the middle of something. We must be willing to surrender to inspiration when it comes calling. That might mean dropping what we’re doing and changing plans at the last minute.

If your name is bad, change the name or make fun of it

If your name is bad, change the name or make fun of it.

When the comedian Bill Bailey was asked how he comes up with his jokes, he replied ‘I start with the laugh and work backwards from there.’ Designers have to do something similar. They begin with a vision of the result and work backwards to figure out what they need to do to make it a reality. This is especially true when designers are tasked with bringing something into the world that has never existed before. They must have a clear vision of what they’re trying to achieve, otherwise, it’s like trying to steer a ship without a compass.
