Art thinking makes the imagination come alive and produces vibrant, emotional ideas rooted in physical making.
If you had to choose between a pencil, a knife, or a hammer as the only tool you could ever own, which would you choose and why?
Chikezie gave the final word
Personally, I would choose a pencil, especially in the context of being a Web Designer.
The pencil is the only ‘tool’ that I can use to quickly & efficiently illustrate my conceptual ideas, and it is the only tool where I can take a concept to the next level without having to waste resources (time).
However, there are times where spontaneity with a blade or a hammer do prevail. Let’s say in my case, the Knife = Photoshop, and the Hammer = Textmate. There have been times where spontaneous and non-conceptualized works have come to fruition. The work wasn’t as refined as if I planned it out, but it was still a successful encounter.
