A favorite interview question posed to me is: "Where do you get your inspiration?" It's an overrated question and my only answer is: "information is everywhere. If you want it or not. Intellectual property is being literally thrown at you. Sometimes even for free. If you are really good at what you do, you also get paid to use it." Yet, what should be of more relevance is what to do with all this information, especially if you are both a professional in the world of media and practice several design disciplines. I believe that filtering resources is the "now" and the "future": research, judge, filter, refine, reset, arrange and finally fabricate proper content narration which means that, according to its arrangement and narration, a piece of work can win in value or devaluate. And what about the decision of how much content is too much content, for example in a magazine? When is editorial design "editorial design"? What matrix is to be followed? What happens when designers turn into editors? The more or less of what?
