Happy New Year DA Collective,
With the start of every year, our focus turns to “beginnings” as a whole. Resolutions, new outlooks, rebranding, reorganizing … redesign. At almost every level we take a deeper look inside this introspective month. Design solves problems. It is the answer to many of our questions. Whether designing your new approach to life, your aesthetic, to corporate environments and sporting areas. There are pages to turn, new chapters to write, evolutions to begin and as Charles Eames once put it “reorganizing the need is the primary condition for design.”Ask the question, recognize the need … therein lies the ability to create and design. May this new year and decade be your reinvention, my dear Design Alchemists. Let’s reflect quickly, then journey together.

Where to begin? Their contributions will forever be benchmarks for achievements in the world of design. Often imitated, but never recreated, these visionaries lead far beyond their times. Their portfolios included world-class cars and global gateway airports. The world’s first, tallest buildings, radical museums, to iconic style and leather gloves. Here are those our industry has lost.
