Some Thoughts

One of my favorite takeaways from the Housing Works Design on a Dime event was a post card from Paul Smith.  The image was of a hand written list entitled "Some Thoughts," reflections from the desk of Sir Paul Smith.  I tried to get the photo from the designer but never heard back so I was happy to find a post on the British Vogue website that explains this inspiring list.
"I was sitting in my office one day and jotting down some thoughts about life - and then I just left them on my notebook and someone from the team came in and saw them - and the next thing I knew they were framed and on the wall. Then the New York team requested them because they wanted them on the wall of the New York shop..." - Paul Smith
