This has been quite the season of transition, change, adjustment, and of new beginnings. I have started a new position as a Product Designer for a digital agency in Irvine called Envoy. So far I feel like I have learned an incredible amount about what it means to build a functional and aesthetically pleasing digital product and all of the intricacies and deep thought processes that go with it. At the same time, I have barely scratched the surface of what this position is truly responsible for. I spend my days at work in a constant state of trying to create solutions that make sense. There is this profound pressure as a product designer to innovate and to produce experiences that create a sense of ease in people's lives.
I believe that this daily routine has created a personal creative desire to make things that don't necessarily make sense. To create things that aren't governed by order, but by chaos. There is something freeing, yet profound about creating abstract work. Many people would tell you that it is meaningless, confusing, and that it shouldn't be labeled as art. However, I believe the desire to create chaos and the fact that this type of work is a reaction to something qualifies it as meaningful art. It is almost like a blueprint or signature of an artist's emotions and actions.
