When removal is mistaken for reduction.

As a working designer it is easy to get locked down to your every day workflow. I have been eager to try out watercolors again, as I love the very casual and suggestive style. It has been years, if not decades since i last dabbled with watercolors, so here are some of my initial attempts.
I am honored to receive the Red Dot Award 2014 on behalf og Per-Johan Sandlund, Linda Natalia Tunheim and I for the project WARM.
I am happy to announce our honorable mention for our WARM project from the Core 77 Award Jury.
Don’t accept done for good, and don’t accept good for excellent.
With its pure materials, simple shapes and lack of extraneous elements, minimalism is often seen as a design truism. Why does it sometimes come across as the blueprint philosophy of design, and what is the intrinsic value of Minimalism that lends it such authority?
How modern designers believe a constant pursuit of function will set them free from style – and why this is a mirage.
The NONOBJECT book attempts to explain the user-object relationship, and here’s why I believe every designer should read this book.
“I think one of the things that really separates us from the high primates is that we’re tool builders. I read a study that measured the efficiency of locomotion for various species on the planet. The condor used the least energy to move a kilometer. And, humans came in with a rather unimpressive showing, about a third of the way down the list. It was not too proud a showing for the crown of creation. So, that didn’t look so good. But, then somebody at Scientific American had the insight to test the efficiency of locomotion for a man on a bicycle. And, a man on a bicycle, a human on a bicycle, blew the condor away, completely off the top of the charts.
And that’s what a computer is to me. What a computer is to me is it’s the most remarkable tool that we’ve ever come up with, and it’s the equivalent of a bicycle for our minds.” —Steve Jobs
