Rule: Get dirty.
"Sure, use your hands, get off the computer, etc., but I love anthropologist Mary Douglas' idea of dirt being 'matter out of place.' I think ideas can be like this, too. Design is a vessel that holds other things, so explore other fields, and import their insights into your practice. Read a book on astronomy, look at conceptual art, appreciate the vernacular. Insight comes from the outside."
