I really like studying and writing about design. You can read several of my articles at http://www.logodesign.org/
Coming up with ideas and writing about design can help you realize what you’re doing. It’s sort of like teaching someone a subject that you love. You are re-enforcing your own knowledge by teaching others. It actually feels sort of good. So the next time you want to really remember or learn something, try learning it and then teaching it to someone else.
