I found values. Like, things I really care about and want to talk about more. I really care about how we communicate in our community. I want people to stop yelling “thief” at the first shared stroke weight. I want to help bring our community back to a collaborative and supportive environment, with empathy and compassion. I really care about encouraging people in our community to have a life outside design, by giving people reasonable workloads and timelines and not glorifying the hustle. Pressuring people into sleepless nights — and all the other parts of not taking care of yourself with false deadlines — is frankly, just stupid, in our made up industry. And I think it’s a lesson for both sides of the table: the ones giving the deadlines as well as the ones saying “no problem”. Even better, I found a voice that I can actually talk about these issues with, that I’m comfortable putting out into the world, but is still true to myself.
