ISSUE # 05

While everyone has their reservoirs of brilliance or genius, the trick lies in tapping and mining them. Some of us have found our well-springs or touchstones — places, activities, rituals, people, or things — which in some way support the attainment of inner peace, joy, creativity, or well-being. Designers have a slightly different style when it comes to awakening that creative muse.

DW ran a massive survey in this issue to find out what sort of music UI and UX designers listen to while working. The end result is enlightening and startling, explaining a variety of designer behaviours as well as what type of brilliance it needs to enter the creative zone.
