I came across this video and I’ve watched it about 5 times already, because each time I watch it I hear different bits and pieces that really stick to me. I found so many parallels between Joel Bukiewicz of Cut Brooklyn the knife maker and myself as a designer or user experience designer. At the core of myself and many people in my profession we are makers at our very basic core and foundation of who we are.
Maker is a person that dives in and makes things by hand at some form or fashion. You need that human element and touch that handmade quality provides because its in the details. Just like Joel…I want to create products that has a purpose and that provides value; also improves a users quality of life through a better product or experience. It’s such a great video and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
