BLOG: Apparently God's a Lousy Designer


About the Author

Carolyn Allen is a long-time "creative", having invested decades in graphic design, product design, packaging, magazine editing, and community organizing.

This longish essay is her confrontation with reality -- a cold shower that wakes you up and makes you think about your career and how it fits into today's realities of natural systems, climate change ... and even over-population.

Satire? Cynical? Sarcastic? "Well... how about confronting the demons in my OWN career of design, productivity and work! This takes a hard look at where we're going, and asks tough questions about how, what and why," she says. Where do you get tough love like this?

Apparently God's a Lousy Designer - LULU Apparently God's a Lousy Designer is an expanded essay about innovation, design and natural systems. A tough look at our careers and how they fit into nature's systems.
