Micheal Vanderbyl is a designer that has applied his expertise to many disciplines. A graphic designer by training who found his way into interiors and product design by not limiting his vision to a single field. His work is exquisite and his message an inspiration:
Find the things that are unique about who you are. Align yourself with the companies and products that you can get behind and defend. Raise them up and they will speak for you.
I love this so much because it speaks to authenticity. There's nothing more soul-killing than having to feign excitement about something you really don't believe in and although Life does not always make it easy, it's worth every effort to relentlessly pursue what sets your heart afire.
