Sean Hall, a Goldsmiths design lecturer, said that when you’ve talked about your idea, it feels like it’s done, so you never actually make it happen.
This talk cites sources where he might have got that idea.

I got featured on the Goldsmiths Design Blog, thanks to interviewer Nadia Barbu. Take a look here.
What often inspires me is watching other people talk about their work in a conference/panel format. The V&A have put on some great design conferences during London Design Week, and I helped Designersblock with their first conference in September (in fact I was on one of the panels too).
It inspires me so I know how much it could inspire others – which is why I organised, with an MA student, a panel discussion at Goldsmiths university where I study BA Design.

This made me laugh.
