"I've really enjoyed being in the community because there's not just designerS, there ARE trend forecasters, teachers different creatives. we're sharing our thoughts AND I love hearing the different perspectives. it gives me an opportunity to challenge and question myself. as a designer you're rushed to do things and so your research kind of goes to the wayside. so being part of a community reminds me TO do more careful, thoughtful research, IT will be better for my clients and I love going to the website and reading links from people and finding new ideas."
