In response to the tools of the trade poster trend, I wrote a blog post & created an accompanying poster.
Little chunk out of the post...
"Being a designer is complicated. We are artists while having to design around facts and statistics. We have to value our gut instincts when designing, just as we value our Macbooks or our Moleskines, in order to find the balance between statiscally proven design and an experience that gives our work a heartbeat that sets it apart. It is important to follow the proven path, but sometimes we must be willing to blaze the trail.
After all, we’re designers, not robots."
