The true beauty of design lies in its simplicity, what is added is not nearly as important as what is left out.
Often solving a problem is not a difficult task, realizing there is a problem can be the tricky part.
Don't be afraid to embrace something new, "tried and true" can often lead to the road of mediocrity.
Outstanding photography is seldom a result of any set formula, it is simply the art of storytelling in a single image.
What good is it to do something really awesome if nobody sees it? Post, Like, Tweet, Follow, Snap, Gram, Tumblr… You get the idea.
Can the left side of the brain get some love here, the sweet science of mathematic in a creative world, umhhh!
