My blog’s homepage design

We spend too much time being cool

If I wanted to, I could leave my website with the usual plain white or light coloured background.

Do I know it looks zhup? Sure I do. But I’ll rather use a picture I created 15 years ago precisely for the purpose of setting up my website.

“Diverse styles to arrive at own”

However zhup it is, my job is to unzhup it somehow. If I successfully do it, I’ll be a better designer than if I’d conveniently, or lazily left the background with a simple background.

As is industrial Scandinavian

As is jacket design

Apple products

Illusion

Merely falling in place under the illusion that one is being trendy.

Irony

Trendy equals herd trajectory.

When a designer falls in line

He needs to make money. Settle for what is naturally eye pleasing.
