Welcome To The Smashing Design Section!
Design is an invitation to create, to inspire, to provoke, to initiate change, to transform others, to change others and ultimately to make the world a better place. Design is a verb and like a verb it is always moving, changing, transforming while the processes and stages remain constant.
We all need to find inspiration, we all need to process our ideas, we all need to sketch, we all need to do research, we all need to go to the computer and create several iterations, we all need to revise and refine our ideas, and we all need to deliver the now tangible products or applications to the world. This makes our profession one of great responsibility and commitment while it is full of excitement and energetic.
We want to bring to our audience topics to continue to inspire us, to challenge us, to make us think, to in way, rock our cradle of comfort and feel motivated to do more and do it better.
