When I got my first job there were as many drawing boards in the studio as there were beige square Apple Macs, a few years later I remember the studio bosses saying, we should jump on this website bandwagon, it looks like it might take off.... and so the story began. Now with JQuery, media queries, mobile and responsive design and Apps and the like I find myself feeling very old and wishing I could go back to designing something, printing it on paper and letting everyone see it how I intended it to be seen. And seeing the kids coming out of college, finishing fancy courses that have focused on technology and software and overlooking some of the core fundamentals of layout and typography, we're currently interviewing and the lack of design skills is depressing. Just wondered how other people are dealing with the fast paced technology led world we live in. What keeps you motivated and enthusiastic? At 40 I've got at least another 20 years of working and it's only going to get faster. Is it time to re-train as a bricklayer?
