“I am constantly thinking about new features or practices in the design community. What I see on the web fuels a desire, almost an obsession, to design new, focused and effective work. I am constantly working to better myself by trying new things or learning a new coding language. I do this simply because I want to, not because it is just another skill I can throw into my repertoire.” - Tyler Brooks
