For some, to 'design' means to transform ideas into visuals. Sometimes, we just need to conceive a more human future. Fundamental design principles emphasize balance and alignment, contrast, repetition, proportion, movement, and the functionality of white space. Beyond these foundations, there are other beats to the heart. Finding a place for these Seven-Tenets are critical to Calvin's practice:
Having a humanist approach to design allows a focus where people are the center of the design goal.
Going into it with a sense of purpose, passion, and craft—make it personal.
A point of view. Having a sense of clarity and determination is paramount.
Creating a sense of surprise that stays with you.
Design for the ways people really act, think, and live.
Simple, quick, and glanceable.
Design is never done. Be inspired enough to share—launching interactive processes within the design flow.
