Every year I try to make a post on Thanksgiving. It's a time to reflect on the work that's been done over the past year and a chance think about what's next. I can get caught up overthinking where I'm at as a designer and if the work I'm doing is resonating. I guess that's what makes "us" us. This Black Friday Shinola released their "The Bolt is Black Collection." It reminded me that it's not always about the final product or your "portfolio." It's about the process and sharing the process with the people that matter the most. As I observed each detail of the Runwell Wall Clock, Turntable, and Power Supply I remembered the stories that came with those details.
Many of you have HEARD me talk on end about both frustrations and joys this project has brought me, and I'm thankful you've LISTENED. I'm thankful for all of you. I hope you enjoy the work. Happy Thanksgiving 2016.
