Design is like a present

Alissia Melka-Teichroew quote, Something else entirely I think—it’s like buying presents. You usually buy something for someone else that somewhere you also enjoy because it is more fun that way—it’s more genuine if you do it that way.

Over the weekend I had a lengthy interview with one of my new favourite designers, Alissia Melka-Teichroew. I was introduced to her work recently after she started following me on twitter. As I was going through her designs there were a couple things I came across that I recognized. It had been a while since my last interview so I thought she would be perfect person to hear about her design philosophy. Above is one quote that I pulled from our talk on Saturday. You can expect the full interview here in a couple weeks after the editing is complete.
