The self that signals

What signals are you giving out? Everything from your wardrobe to your attitude goes on display in to convince or dupe others of who you really are. #gif #selfawareness

What signals are you giving out? Everything from your wardrobe to your attitude goes on display in to convince or dupe others of who you really are.

Led by imaginings, you chase the perfect external note. But sometimes the creation of the ideal self sends you in the wrong direction.

Trying to change from outside in, the internal battle succumbs to inauthenticity. Acting like somebody you’re not is exhausting.

By listening to yourself, like a trampoline you can bounce off and out real such signals. Once you free yourself from the false expectations that may be limiting, the world becomes your oyster.

The most fascinating designer on the planet

“The genie is out of the bottle. I’m never going to be niche again. I’m commercial establishment. I would love to be weird and unattainable again. That’s what I wanted to be—to live in poverty but be like Giacometti.” Rick Owens

“The genie is out of the bottle. I’m never going to be niche again. I’m commercial establishment. I would love to be weird and unattainable again. That’s what I wanted to be—to live in poverty but be like Giacometti.”

What a dataset of colors, rather a barcode of colors.

Mr. Rogers sweaters started off neon vibrant in the 70s, red dominated the 90s, and the palette got darker as time went on.

And his thoughts were just as beautiful.

In an interview with Fader Magazine, Nike FC’s Design Director Pete Hoppins says the Nigeria kit was actually the easiest one to design:

Nigeria was actually the easiest! That’s everyone having fun. We worked closer with the players and the Nigerian federation to make that happen. The hardest were Brazil and England, just like always. It’s got to be a yellow kit and a white kit, respectively. You have to deliver that. Otherwise, you’ll be shot. [laughs] How do you move those forward every two, four years? Especially when you’re trying to innovate the performance. We’re not just going to add things to the kits for the sake of it.

What Nigeria is hopefully going to allow us to do in the future is show that some of the more traditional teams that if you are willing to be creative in the partnership, you can ultimately have something more culturally relevant that connects with the youth.
