When I do a design project, I begin by listening carefully to you as you talk about your problem and read whatever background material I can find that relates to the issues you face. If you’re lucky, I have also accidentally acquired some firsthand experience with your situation. Somewhere along the way an idea for the design pops into my head from out of the blue. I can’t really explain that part; it’s like magic. Sometimes it even happens before you have a chance to tell me that much about your problem! Now, if it’s a good idea, I try to figure out some strategic justification for the solution so I can explain it to you without relying on good taste you may or may not have. Along the way, I may add some other ideas, either because you made me agree to do so at the outset, or because I’m not sure of the first idea. At any rate, in the earlier phases hopefully I will have gained your trust so that by this point you’re inclined to take my advice. I don’t have any clue how you’d go about proving that my advice is any good except that other people — at least the ones I’ve told you about — have taken my advice in the past and prospered. In other words, could you just sort of, you know… trust me?

My 8-year-old sister proudly declared that she knows that “WTF” means “Wow That’s Funny” and has been using it all over the internet.

One day Tom Waits was driving on a Los Angeles freeway when a fragment of a melody popped into his head. He looked around for something to capture the tune – a pencil or pen – but had nothing to record it.
He started to panic that he d lose the melody and be haunted by it forever and his talent would be gone. In the midst of this anxiety attack he suddenly stopped looked at the sky and said to whatever force it was that was trying to create itself through the melody “Excuse me. Can you not see I’m driving? Do I look like I can write down a song right now? If you really want to exist come back at a more opportune moment… otherwise go bother somebody else today. Go bother Leonard Cohen.”
Waits said his creative process and the heavy anxiety that permeated it changed that day. In releasing the creative force he realized that creativity “could be a peculiar wondrous bizarre collaboration and conversation between Tom and the strange external genius that was not Tom,” — Gilbert said.

The thing I hate the most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative and ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists. Modern art is a disaster area. Never in the field of human history has so much been used by so many to say so little.
