After a couple of our lectures this year were by people who try to make change with their design work - the stand out for me being Noel Douglas of Occupy Design (Occupy Wall Street and so on) - for one of my 5 “I wish I’d known” outcomes I created a traditional protest sign.

“The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this:
A human creature born abnormally, inhumanely sensitive.
To them… a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create — so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, their very breath is cut off… They must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency they are not really alive unless they are creating.”
~ Pearl Buck
