If you chose design as your profession, be prepared to live “by the craft”. Is it as if you hear a continuous voice inside your head that always whispers something: “This is good typography”, “Here I would change all the fonts”, “This color and texture don’t work well together.” What can I say, it is a bit mental, but designers simply cannot imagine their life without this voice. My six years old son is already asking me: “Mom, why all I hear from you is design and posters?” The answer is simple: because it’s a drive. A momentum that leads you into the unknown. It is always an experiment. You can recognize a designer anywhere. It’s like he or she is a member of a cult: an eternal search of something in their eyes and a sense of endless deadlines. A continuous talk about how bad the fonts are. And this goes on all the time.
But design is also a pure joy of creating something. It is the delight of making numerous variations and painfully selecting a piece that is the one. Perhaps we are all a sect, in a way, but I think we are more than that – we are a large design family, a family that is always ready to jump in and help.

Yes, the world has shrunk and at the same time expanded, and now we all live in one single space – a space where we dream, work, connect to one another through Facebook, and space, where we love what we do.
