Excerpt from Steven Hellers Commencement address at the College of Creative Studies

Arianna Huffingtons Smith College Commencement Speech On Redefining Success: The Third Metric

“You’ve got to find what you love...love what you do.
If you haven’t found it, keep looking and don’t settle.”

— Steve Jobs

In most people’s vocabularies, design means veneer.
It’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains or the sofa.
But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design.
Design is the fundamental soul of a human-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service.

— Steve Jobs
