re: there is a lack of art in design.

I also feel there is a lack of [something] between design and engineering.

Maybe there is a lack of art in software engineering too.

I remember one of the first mantra of WordPress being —back in the days— "code is poetry" (we joked a lot about WordPress code being a mess...), and in fact, as a former software developer working with developers, I'm convinced that programming is more like literature than any kind of engineer-able skill.

When people ask who my inspirations are, they're are always taken by surprise by the fact that none of them is someone working in my field: I follow and I'm inspired by loads of artists (Tyler Thompson? Instant follow) — writers, painters, entertainers of all sorts.
