Ask DN: What's your purpose as a designer?

    I want to create things people can't imagine living without.

    It doesn't have to be anything big or complicated, it can be a tiny thing that makes a big difference. Probably why I'm obsessed with making the perfect bus arrival prediction app?

    But it could be something enormously complex that makes the simple even simpler. Take Siri - I use it to set a timer when I'm doing laundry and that's about it. Complex system shaves 3 seconds of my least favorite chore and I can't imagine living without that!
