Why More Design?

I am an urban planner and landscape architect who has been working with the Cree Nations in James Bay, Quebec for the past 8 years. As I have become more experienced in my field, my tasks have become more administration and less design. Being on maternity leave for the past 3 months has given me a chance to become human again and get back in touch with myself. The result is a moment of frustration, but also enlightenment that brought me to blurt out, “I need more design and less administration in my life!” My life and business partner jumped at the opportunity to use this statement for marketing purposes, and now this section of the blog is called “More Design”.

So, the first step in creating More Design in my life is to get more into design. I want to take the time to read, research, explore and enjoy the ideas and trends that are our there. I also want to express the opinions and ideas that come from immersing myself in design. Seeing as my life as a new mom revolves around nursing, pee and poo, I think a little intellectual stimulation is necessary. Lol.

I hope you enjoy the blog. Feel free to post your comment and to share this blog with your colleagues, friends and family.
