Many times, design is a challenge; often a search; sometimes a fight. Most constantly, design is a journey, an exploration full of encounters.
There is room for fear, for doubt, but above all, for happiness, inspiration and creativity.
It takes courage and risk to move forward. Curiosity is the spark to keep improving ~ it allows us to (re)discover and challenge ourselves.
This curiosity feeds from individuals; objects and sceneries that open the door to new energy, inspiration and growth.
Sometimes you have to sail away from your safe harbour to explore, dream and wander.
The result is a new start, a new journey.
“Not all those who wander are lost.” ~ J.R.R. Tolkien
