1DD: how to positively impact with design
TOLEDO: “Follow your heart and listen to your intuition.”
"Cultivate and share your dreams. You won’t believe how many people will come willing to collaborate with it. Follow your heart, since no technique or trend replaces the power of intuition.
Be curious as a child, keep a free and open mind. Every now and then frame the big picture. Exchange ideas and listen to different points of view and the purpose will be meaningful for many. Getting your hands dirty is 80% of the work (without small tasks, great things would not exist). Be organized and enjoy the process (if it’s not fun, it doesn’t make sense). And finally, make it beautiful."
