Quote of the week
“Most New Year resolutions are about reducing some of life’s excesses. I want to do the opposite – I don’t want to quit anything so this year I resolve to do more! I want to see more, read more, experience more: I want to discover more things and feed my brain with new stuff to help create more unexpected work.” Stuart Radford of The Partners is among designers who tell us their New Year’s Resolutions for 2015.
