The Rules

As a designer, I find these 10 rules by Sister Corita Kent (popularised by John Cage) as useful now as they must have been last century – they predate BuzzFeed by at least  40 years. When I was teaching Graphic Design in New Zealand last year, my students and I both found they helped clarify the journey we all were on. I think they apply equally well outside of the world of arts and design.

Personally, Rule Eight really resonated with me: “Don’t try to create and analyse at the same time. They’re different processes.”
