I’m : a programmer, writer, podcaster, geek, and coffee enthusiast.

I’ve met both professionals and (mostly) students who believe that when class or work is over, it’s time to take off the designer hat. Design is not a hat, it’s a full body tattoo. It does not come off.

Nicole Guinta: Design on Your Own Time. We see the same effect with programmers: the ones you want to hire are the ones who do side projects at night because they love the craft, not the ones who clock out at 6 and never care about code outside of work.
