We face a challenge: to ensure our design responses are informed more by our thinking than the tools we use. Absorbed by day-to-day execution, we can forget the importance of mistakes and accidents — of balancing intent with experimentation. Failure is valuable, provided we're mindful of why. Embrace the unpredictable nature of everything, and stay mindful. It's how we lace our actions with meaning.
Robbie is a designer based in Edinburgh, Scotland, where he creates interfaces at FreeAgent.

He takes care of the details, because he's a good man, and thorough.
