“Creative people tend to romanticize their tools. We place them on pedestals as the conduits for our ideas and the enablers of our craft. Contrastingly, though, I think all creatives believe that a good tool does not make a good designer, and a good designer does not need top-of-the-line special tools.”
This is important: when we talk about the tools we use are we being clear about where our process ends and the tool begins? Or how our process leverages the tools effectively? Do we mention what’s unique in our process that benefits the tool?
