“The worst thing you can do to anybody trying to be creative is to demand participation in their vision.”  – Chuck Klosterman

I came across this quote while working on a difficult design project. The concept was and execution was solid and aesthetically pleasing. To only be deconstructed into an abomination.  This quote completely summed up that moment of the outcome of that particular project.

Please feel free to comment with your great designed turned into an abomination below. I’d love to hear it.
