I have always tried to embrace change, personally and professionally. On a philosophical level change is only a new set of problems to be solved. As a designer I am hardwired to find solutions. So 2018 is well underway and I am doing my thing, working with my clients, welcoming new ones on board and saying good bye as well. It’s easy to talk up newness but there is something beautiful about saying good bye too. Lately I have been assembling an archive of about 15 years worth of work to present back to the client. I began building this archive some time ago in a moment of clarity, endings are inevitable. I feel very honored to have been able to work so long and so diligently, and to see the evidence of all that work in one place was terribly satisfying. I have never spent much time looking back but now and again it can be a very informative activity. So while the faces and problems of clients ebb and flow my job is to keep showing up. Here are 2 things I found when I showed up to work today. Enjoy these two sketches from my ever expanding archive of ideas.
