I love design, no doubt. Design should not only be visually appealing, it should convey substance, course and purpose. Design means more than meets the eye; beyond aesthetics, design defines intention, plan and execution. I hate the fact that there are designs that had not engaged any intellectual thought processes; they are just there to fill and exploit the market, to make us feel like there is a void in our life that should be cared for. I hate the fact that this world is gladly cruising to a dead end.

Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against pure artistic design. But as the world enter a phrase of imminent environmental collapse, it is worrying that the people, us, do not feel an urgency to change the lifestyle that is leading us to our demise. We are, the frog in the pot. Perhaps blame is on the leaders or producers, but for certain is that these directors also react and adjust to the society and culture. Choice and consumption is eventually on the shoulders of the public, at the core of society.

If you share a similar passion for design and sustainability, or have general thoughts and responses, please leave a word or two, or get in contact, and let’s explore ideas, critiques and solutions, together.
