I do not plan my designs. At all. I don’t think I would have the patience to finish anything if I did. Im convinced that youll get better results from sticking to a simple approach that incorporates randomization, improvisation, intuition, etc. than thorough planning. Its like Faulkner or early blues music. As an added bonus, if you do something a thousand times it will inevitably change and improve. Theres a certain regeneration to it. Consistency, rhythm, repetition have been very strong themes in my life. I work the way I do because its a format wherein just a few elements can be used to generate an infinite number of results. There are only a few things I could do a million times and not get bored and I put a high premium on them.
