Do any other creatives out there find that you are addicted to problem solving? Not the important problems… like why is their starvation in the world… or how can we bring out world peace… but tiny little aesthetic imperfections?
I can’t seem to turn it off.
I go over to a friends for dinner and as their poring out their hearts, I’m rearranging their furniture… in my mind.
At the grocery store I’m improving the kerning for type on a package… in my mind.
I saw this poster by Union Lane on Flickr and I think it summarized my thoughts pretty well. I guess the neurotic-problem-solving part of my brain makes me a designer.
