Design is a practice.

01. Be curious. Be patient. Resist the temptation to allow expectation to stifle your ability to explore and discover.

02. Be present. Be mindful. Celebrate arriving to your practice each day. Celebrate focus and perseverance.

03. Be brave. Note what feels difficult. Challenge yourself and take chances. Experiment. Take risks.

04. Be informed. Be critical. Support your work with knowledge. Think beyond design that is informative. Design should be transformative.

05. Be kind. Respect personal boundaries for yourself and others.

06. Embrace each moment of the design process. Take breaks and reflect. Then, jump back in. Design is a practice. Repeat.
