'The Lazy Designers Guide to Success'

I was happy to read inspirational designer, Michael Bierut's philosophies on being a designer this morning on Azure. He has simplified design in 7 steps and while the entire article was definitely worth reading, I will highlight just the 7 steps.

1. Keep it simple.
2. Don’t reinvent the wheel [Part 1].
3. Don’t reinvent the wheel [Part 2]: Rotate the tires instead.
4. Do as you’re told.
5. Steal. (of course, this is directed towards ideas)
6. Once you come up with something, never let it go.
7. Make other people do the work.
