A few of our favourite lines

Surprising no-one, designers don’t just look to other designs/designer blogs or competitor landscape audits for inspiration to their tasks at hand. And, over the last year, there has been one consistent stream of influence for the DxB family. Whether it be discussing the best lines from the most recent Game of Thrones episode, or listening to our favourite shows or movies, a well-worded sentence has been the launching platform for many ‘a-ha’ moments. We drop these lines into presentations as personal jokes, or to simply provide a further cultural reference that justifies a particular design decision. We even take these well-worded snippets of wisdom and adopt them into our own tags.

So, here are a few of our favourites:

“It’s not possible.”
“No, it’s necessary.”
— Cooper, Interstellar

“Isn’t it strange that we talk least about the things we think about most?”
— Charles Lindbergh (Adapted into a line from The Perks of Being a Wallflower)

“I don’t want to be rigid, it makes you”
— Roger Sterling, Mad Men

“If you don’t like what is being said, then change the conversation.”
— Peggy Olsen, Mad Men

“Action is character…if we never did anything, we wouldn’t be anybody.”
— Jenny, An Education

“It’s a very brave person that does something anonymously.”
— Joan Harris, Mad Men
