Design as a Gift

Creative people have to believe in the value of their work. If you don’t have any belief then you can’t give anything – designing is an act of giving, and a belief in the value of the work fuels the desire to express something. (via swissmiss)

Not sure about the last time I was actually able to give said gift at a job (or if that’s even possible in most modern design jobs), but the full article/manifesto is interesting.
