What Will Not Change In The Next 10 Years?
Instead of just stringing you along as a reader, let me just share the answer the to my question for you…
If you want to be a true innovator, you don't ask yourself what will the future look like, you ask yourself what isn't going to change over the next 10 or so years. That is what great innovators like Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Steve Jobs did. They looked at the world in terms of timelessness. Design isn't going anywhere, in fact, over the next 10 years it will only become more important as people and companies attempt to distinguish themselves from their competition. But even more so, beautiful type will continue to revolutionize the workplace.
The reason typography is so important is because it shows that you pay close attention to detail. Recently on a walk around Brooklyn, NY with my excellent-of-a-designer-wife, Hannah, she was taking pictures of things that I would never have even noticed. That’s what makes a good designer, or an excellent artist, for that matter, is successful artists and people are always looking for inspiration from a variety of different environments and sources.
Take a look around you and see the magic that surrounds you. Then believe in yourself enough to turn the seemingly unimportant into a work of art. If you can first believe that you can do that, you can do anything.
