    “My greatest pain in life is that I’ll never get to watch myself perform live.” – Kanye West


    Architects, interior designers, and design professionals as a whole are all pros in the art of selfish selflessness. Martyrs in our own eyes, we constantly let ego get in the way of the good we do and the potential for good we have to offer. We’ve created an internal culture disconnected from reality, a practice constantly playing reactive defense, and have developed a bitterness and cynicism that’s caused us to lose touch with our own humanity – and worse, of those we’re meant to serve.


    Join Obi Okolo as he discusses why the era of the ego in design has to end. For that to happen, we first have to be real with ourselves and what we’ve become as a profession. Let’s talk about why Kanye West just might be the most successful designer of our time, and more importantly, why that’s a huge problem.
