Designing for the Holiday

Microblog #10

My wife and I were talking last night about Christmas trees. I like modern, aesthetically pleasing decor. She likes home-made elementary school ornaments and popcorn strings.

We compromised this year, and did a blend of both on our tree. It doesn’t look like I want it to, but it wouldn’t be a compromise if it did. Of course, the kids like her version better.

I guess designing for the holidays isn’t any different than designing anything else. The only people seeing my tree this pandemic Christmas are my immediate family. And to them, it’s the best Christmas tree in the world.
