Re: About designing and making

Hi Ellis

A book on design is an interesting concept. I am curious to know whether the author is considering that the content is about original ideas and creating an original design, or about taking an existing concept and laying out its proportions in a pleasing manner. The latter seems to be more achievable - George Walker has written in this area. The former seems more formidable - what can be done to release and direct the creative juices? Any thoughts where the author is coming from?

Regards from Perth

Derek
