5 Designer Resolutions For 2010

Not to rush the New Year, but here are the "Designer Resolutions" I want to focus on in 2010.

I've included a link to one related ExhibiTricks posting (that really stirred people up!) from this past year with each resolution:

1) Check the Tech
Try to be more mindful of the reasons for using technology effectively, and not as "electronic wallpaper."

2) Think Small(er)
Celebrate the opportunities to employ smaller, subtler touches in design projects.

3) Cheaper and Faster and Edgier
Prototype early and often --- let ideas fly without over analyzing them in mindless meetings.

4) Use the Underutilized

Look for ways to stretch budgets (and minds) by using existing resources to better advantage.

5) Don't Start with Hype

Focus on the heart of the idea, the story, not the marketing campaign.
