This week we had an amazing workshop at school with Matt Jones and Jack Schulze from BERG, a design partnership in London. What made this workshop so amazing was that, for the first time in months, I felt like we were given license to actually go crazy and have fun. (Do not underestimate the import of these words for someone who is supposed to be in design school.) And, even though I missed one day due to an impromptu blitzkrieg waged on my health by a stomach virus, I still took away an incredible infusion of new ideas.

Haribooooo! Nuclear fuel for designers.
