I just listed to a really enjoyable DO lecture by graphic designer (and now writer) Frank Chimero. I definitely recommend watching it, as well as perusing the rest of the DO talks (as I’ll be doing).

The title inspiration for the DO lecture was a quote from David Chang, head chef and owner of Momofuku, who was stopping a sous chef from trying to cut a corner. The quote resonated with Chimero because he had been beating himself up about how long and difficult the process had become for writing his new book, but has since embraced that working through this laborious process may be the most valueable part of the experience (both for himself and for his eventual readers).

February 28’s daily design idea is Chang’s quote and the title Chimero’s DO lecture: “We don’t work like that here. We do things the long, hard, stupid way.
