As designers we visit (stretch, sink, touch on , delve, have access to, stretch across) territor y that is vast and varied and limitless. Through our research we learn biochemistr y and film noir. We study stem cells, recite Rumi, hear German swear words. We generate ideas and concepts, only limited by the imagination (unlimited). We choose to express these ideas through typography and photography. Through scale, color, contrast and concept. We use our rational mind, our irrational mind, a sense of playfulness, a sense of order. We use our eyes, we use our hands, we use our mouth, we use our guts.We edit, we add more, we combine, we break the grid. Design lets us see and feel vast.
