We love this tip he has for beginner Designers on Medium “Bend the rules. Yes, you’ll be sharp and consistent, minimalist and trendy, but you can’t be sterile. You have to innovate and speak design from the heart. Go travel, get out of your comfort zone and view things from another perspective. Don’t settle.”
