Everything is designed

Everyday, design choices get made. Emails are sent, ideas are shared, products are shipped, things are built. Often, they’re mostly inconsequential. Other times, they create a bigger splash. Sometimes they have far reaching effects, that stretch into and beyond the original intentions of the designer.

This newsletter is about learning from the design choices that get made every day and the effects that those choices have on us. We shape our world and then our world shapes us.

We’ll cover things like:

  • Design leadership

  • Storytelling and design

  • Design process

  • Other stuff (probably related to design)

Who is this guy?

I’m Stuart. I’m a design director, living and working from sunny Johannesburg, South Africa. My background is in software development, but I’ve done a whole host of different design work over the last 10 years or so. These days I lead teams that make products and services that are radically better—by design.
