"rules are meant to be broken"
As a graphic designer, I value consistency, pattern, rhythm, color. Whether the project is specific or just a fun side gig, intention and control should be the focus of every project. But, I'd like to say, that art (or design) is not limited to rules. To explain, most have heard the popular, yet questionable, saying; "rules are meant to be broken" and I find this true in the journey of self inventing, but I like to call these rules instead, patterns. As people we love to know 'what comes next' or the coming note in the song but get excited when they don't know or shocked when they see something new. This is my goal, a recognized melody, with an add of the unexpected.
