“Los Angeles, because is it the seat of all myth-making in the West. There are qualities to this city — light, color palette, dimensions — that anyone weaned on cinema is already innately familiar with, which makes it always uncanny to new visitors.

“Theory holds a larger meaning for design work, as it grounds it in a cultural context of human want and need. As we reflect on the hours we spend at a job, design theory provides a reason for our hard work, a reason other than “just a paycheck.” We work in design because design changes the world, humanizes technology, and improves the quality of the human experience.”
