his advice is a platypus.

Un Sedicesimo. Frank Chimero

“It’s hard to make purple work in a design.
Look people in the eyes when you are talking or listening to them.
Quiet is always an option, even if everyone is yelling.
Libraries are a good place. The books are free there, and it smells great.
Keep two books on your nightstand at all times: one fiction, one non-fiction.
Adobe software never stops being frustrating.
If you meet a person who cares about the same obscure things you do,
hold on to them for dear life.
Most important things happen at a table.
It is okay to romanticize things a little bit every now and then: it gives you hope.
If you need an analogy, use an animal.
Be suspicious of lists, advice, and lists of advice.
Everyone is just making it up as they go along.”
