Stumbled across a blog post with a headline "Make happy those who are near, and those who are far will come." and that attracts me tremendously. The author, Cristina Chapman, attended the Manchester Design Symposium 2012 just 2 weeks ago and got inspired by some key speakers like Adrian Shaughnessy - renowned graphic designer and writer of How to be a graphic designer without losing your soul  and Will Hudson - founder of It's Nice That, but more by Morag Myerscough - founder of Studio Morag. It's quoted "The person who inspired me the most was Morag Myercough, she has been a designer for the past 20 years but only in the last 10 years she has been doing exactly what she believes in." Morag has done a lot of way-finding design and instilled her quirky sense into many valuable organizations such as children's hospital, Deptford project by transforming an unused train into a cafe. It's indeed a life long journey for all designers to explore what truly resonates their dreams and things close to their hearts. Stay truthful and original.
