Imagine seeing fireworks in the sky, sitting on a comfortable plush chair at the beach, and me handing you a glass of your favorite beverage. Hello! I’m Hector and welcome to the launch of my new blog. Undoubtedly there are plenty of these digital recordings floating in the cloud. To stand outamong all the noise, I felt the need initially to find a niche space for myself and my readers. My many colorful identities enrich my perspective, yet make unclear a well-defined literary category. Therefore, unlike those other specialized sites, mine will include an assortment of topics: design, travel, art, machine learning, nature, marketing, food, social justice, data, some more design and new ideas I encounter along the way. Ultimately, my motivation for writing centers on growth, positivity, and curiosity of the world. You’re encouraged to comment, ask questions, and make recommendations as we explore this new course in the new year. Happy 2018 AD or 2561 BE! Adelante!

Evaluate-Generate Cycle: Recreating the Design Model

Designing in Circles Designers— or more accurately, strategists who use design—often fit processes into cycles. While the creative process can take several forms, nearly every model of the design cycle is a circle. Here are a few images I’ve encountered in my career...
