Design is a big word. A design usually has to satisfy certain goals and constraints, it may take into account aesthetic, functional, economic, or socio-political considerations, and is expected to interact with a certain environment. Compared to art, that is in general not about functionality, I like the different challenges that making designs has to offer.
Building Websites is a very enjoyable yet challenging process for me.
Asthetics and functionality often clash and help form new ways of visually representing something.
A website is the way you are seen in the virtual world out there.
Touching clay or porcelain in itself is already calming.
Focusing, yet spacing out while creating new forms helps even more balancing yourself.
