"This process of collaborating with a text, an idea, the human experience, and a group of unique individuals has led to the creation of inspiring work. What I hope to design is something telling about the world around us. It is a process of building and communicating the most important values in our life and culture and displaying them in a way that we can understand at their fundamental levels. If any one person walks away from a design I have worked on and takes action for the betterment of the community and people around them, then that work was a success."
