Every superhero has their origin story. Whether they are born with their powers, or it takes the bite of an arachnid to cause them, all superheroes have both their moment of discovering their powers and the process of learning best practices for their use. Designers also have their origin stories; their unique processes of self-discovery and form following function. While each designer, each superhero, pursues a distinct path, we all share collective experiences along our journey. This is that story.
