Hi Patrick! Thanks for the response. That makes perfect sense. I was thinking that it could still take away that important aspect of identity without taking away creative control. I still know what I’m doing and I can still make the exact changes I want, but where’s my special place? How do you get designers to have ownership over their workspace, when it is altered by an outside force…? I also didn’t know that my responses were viewable by the author… hah. It said “Private Notes”. Finally found something bad to say about Medium.com design :).
Btw, I’m a design intern @ Adobe this summer and I found your work and this article through Silka… not sure when you are coming, but hope to meet you soon!
