The Weekly Babble: Make Good Art

Join our founder Brian weekly, as he writes up his babbles, musings and thoughts from life as a father, entrepreneur and tech enthusiast. Read on to hear more from the life of the Pad & Quill team. 

Hello Friends,

One of the rules I preach to the team, is that we strive to make good art.

The world is filled with beautiful things that are not that useful or useful things that truly lack style. A good example would be a handsome iPad case that falls apart in six months. That's bad art. For myself and the team, art in technology accessories should result in pieces that are uniquely beautiful yet useful and durable.

This is a trial and effort commitment, I assure you. Some things we have worked on have truly stunk, others fantastically ugly. Then...sometimes we find something that is profoundly amazing. That's the best part of design!

This quote from Neil Gaiman sums it up neatly:

“And now go, and make interesting mistakes, make amazing mistakes, make glorious and fantastic mistakes. Break rules. Leave the world more interesting for your being here. Make good art.”

(in our humble opinion)

Have a great week!

Brian
