Having emerged from Cowbird – a graphic symposium
Here are some gems from the speakers . . .
Creating is not knowing what I’m gonna make next.
Editing stuff, esp mountains of digital photos, creates your own value system.
Information is not knowledge.
Look at design as an activity.
Learn simple coding…it’s the dark art of the future.
From levers, to buttons to surface.
Each new piece of technology is a new tool, there are no ‘deaths-of’ just a new tool.
Archiving is unstable.
Learn to learn, you will keep learning til the end!
