In the past few years, Neil Degrasse-Tyson has emerged as the face of the scientific community. In this clip, he explains the effect NASA’s disbanding has had on American innovation and the inspiration it provided to generations of young people.
A friend recently told me that, “In order to be a designer, you must learn to see the world differently.”
It’s easy to look at an object and think that it doesn’t look right or could look better, but taking it to the next step and thinking in detail how it could be improved is entirely different.
Tom Sachs sees the world differently. He recently released a video called “Color”. It explains his studio’s opinions on each color. I had never thought about color the way he explains it and I’ll never think about olive green or Mcdonald’s Yellow ever again.
A good designer analyzes everything about objects and understands that colors can tell a story in ways that no words can.
