How real do you think a social media profile should be?We kind of edit and curate the realities we show people all the time.

What's interesting about pseudonyms is that they kind of give you a little bit of anonymity, so you can hide behind it.
Design is kind of like a fiction, it's like storytelling. And when we design we create a version of reality.
The idea of what reality is is kind of critical to what designers do.
What we perceive as reality is different for all of us.
There's no such thing as reality.
We are all pioneers...Each of us must find a sense of belonging for the first time in our own lives. Belonging is not a country. It is not singular. It is not a noun. If anything, I would say it’s a network. It’s a community. And we have to make community. We have to knit them together with these shared passions and vulnerability and kindness and encouragement.
I don’t want us to fall prey to the idea that our curiosity must be quarantined from our work less we become distracted or waffly. We don’t want to check the very thing that defines us at the door because it might not match the dress code.
We are all here, able to drink coffee and mingle together, have a positive morning. And it's amazing. This is something to cherish right now, in this moment. It can be gone so fast...
This here is the first fully compostable, biodegradable six-pack ring that does not harm wildlife; it actually saves it.
Our society is set up this way, and it is nearly impossible to remove yourself from the equation.
"If I had refused every job I was offered on some sort of moral grounds, I would only ever be doing things for the co-op."
"it was as if I had cheated somehow, by only spending hundreds of pounds instead of ten of thousands on printers and all that paraphernalia."
"This is the bane of modern design really. People assume that you can only do what is there on the page. 'Adapting a type face?! AH! What a horrendous thing!'"
"It's much easier to take up a tradition that might be waining, but at least it's alive, than it is to try and start one."
"Since I was a child I have always been fascinated and puzzled by lettering - it's all around us and we take it for granted. Someone's gotta do it!"
When a company gives you a million dollars like that, man, they want your soul. They want your soul, and that hurts. I don't know if anybody's ever been in that situation where somebody's asking for your soul, I couldn't do it. I want to do it! Shit yeah, let's give up the soul, here! And they're like, "that soul sucks."
I have to first of all notice that I'm not doing it, that I'm continuing to apply pressure, then I have to decide what I want to do. Do I want to keep putting the pressure on or do I want to move in and see their point of view—and lead. Because when you do that, you become a leader.
It's about changing ME. That's where the power is. Because when I change, everything changes. The dance changes.
We give people an opportunity to reflect on their thinking. And if this isn't about compassion, I don't know what is. Not only for them, but for yourself.
The more we fight, the more energy gets added to the conflict...we think we only have 2 choices. Think of Aikido as the third choice: step in.
First principle is don't be there, get out of the way. Second principle is embrace the energy.
Falling is not losing in Aikido. Falling is an option that we take, because if you resist, it's going to hurt. We learn to fall...and we learn through that process that it's about getting up.
Conflict is a lifelong practice.
