New leaders, sparked fury, spectacular achievements, bold ideas, new campaigns, innovative thinking, reined encounters are phrases that spell out decidedly most years, and they do summarize this year too! For some it doesn’t matter how hard one tried unless you succeeded, for others it doesn’t matter if you failed as long as one tried! Whatever your thoughts, time does move on, ushering in another new year, prodding one to get busy with making your life yet again.
A quote that stayed with me this year, is William Blake’s, “I must create a system or be enslaved by another man; I will not reason and compare; my business is to create”. What you make, create, design is essentially a part of you that you put out in the world!

Here are 6 design picks for the year 2014:
Pantone, an authority of color in our modern world, sets a color for each year. And 2014 was the year of the Radiant Orchid.
In continuance, Marsala is the color of the year for 2015.
Here’s wishing you all a year as deep and meaningful as Marsala, if not for gorgeous, year of the Sheep. May the coming year be exuberant, cause after all Exuberance is beauty! Another phrase from the Blake stables.
And yes, from the rolling hills of Switzerland here’s a dose of Swiss Bliss!
