Development is not always the same thing as progress. It is often up to you, as the leader and bearer of responsibility, to make development progressive.

Leading by Design: The Ikea Story

by Bertil Torekull; translated by Joan Tate

We might distinguish two different schools of design: designers who choose the noun ‘glass’ and those who choose the verb ‘to drink.’ In the end, I’m convinced, it’s the latter school that earns our trust and wins our hearts.

I’m a sucker for structural packaging and when I came across this number on the dieline I was a bot surprised seeing that thedieline doesn’t include much structural package design concepts in their updates. This one is for Philips LED packaging and from what i”ve seen they’ve done a good job in terms of material efficiency and brand awareness. Check it out,..I’m not gonna sit here and talk about it all day!!!
