Welcome to my world of design, writing, mandalas, and furniture - an unusual combination, but in works.

I believe in beauty, simplicity and function.

I believe in clarity, play and practicality.

This is why I create the things I create. 

Mandalas offer clarity and focus.

Illustrated letters bring joy.

Refined furniture offers new life.

On any given day, I could be working in one or all of these areas - now that I have created the freedom to do so. Yes, I highly recommend taking a bit of a sabbatical to ask yourself what is truly important in your world, and then do it.

May the desire to create and share your talents envelop you like a big hug!

About Design

sarahatneckpoint2013I love the world of design – I really do! Design is about solving things and making life better. It's about innovating and imagining. 

Having been in the design world for my whole life is the reason I ask "WHY?" so many times a day. Somewhat like a 5 year old. I am a naturally curious person. 

Why is Design important?

Everything in this world is designed. Some of it very well, some badly and a great deal of it is mediocre.

Good design gets noticed and the response is positive. It is useful. It is practical. It is elegant, and often, it is simple. 

Bad design gets noticed and is dismissed – it does not serve the purpose for which it was "designed." It lacks elegance.

Mediocre design often makes no impression at all - so for the most part, I consider it quite useless. This would be something that works, but not well. Or it is so short-lived that it feels like a waste of human potential. 

Quite simply, good design is important because it makes our lives more beautiful, simplier or easier. And sometimes it does all three!
