Hillman Curtis

I cant help but feel that I should have heard of or read this book before now. I really connected with the book and in particular the principles that Curtis applies to his own work. I was able to relate to a number of the situations that he found himself in, and I was also glad to hear that he continually doubts himself to.

Throughout the book Curtis details his experiences as a digital designer, and the creative processes that he and his company (hillmancurtis, inc) undertake. However I feel that many professionals would easily be able to relate and apply his creative process to thier field in some way.

Here are a few of my favourite quotes:

“Once you know the theme of your design questions can be answered”.

“In my experience you don’t generate ideas, you beg, borrow and steal them”.

“Without communicating a theme, our designs will simply be pretty pictures……a bouquet of roses with no note attached”.

“Ideas/Inspiration are all around us and, like air, we share them, breathing the into our bodies and returning them, changed, into the creative atmosphere”.
