"We design (un)consciously restricted by the existing software features. We mostly depend on tools created by engineers and not designers. Programming allows you to take your own path, a new way of thinking, a new approach far from the usual. It’s a creative singletrack that skips the road. It’s not an easy path, but it’s full of new and awesome adventures."
