tools lead to technique

I'm convinced that much of the visual design we see out there are inspired not by the imagination of designers, but by what their tools can do. Thus we see lots of floating and animated text (made possible by Flash techniques). But is it necessarily interesting and original art?

Never confuse craft for art. This important principle was taught to me by my sister, while we were touring the studios at Cranbrook Academy of Art where she was studying.
