CREATIVE JOURNEY


RAFAEL BERNARDO

*
BRUCE LEE
1971

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water.
Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup.
You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle.
You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

DESIGN REFLECTS THE
TONALITY OF A CERTAIN
MINDSET, THAT WANTS
TO INFORM, ENTERTAIN
AND INSPIRE PEOPLE.


CREATIVITY DOESN’T
GROW ON TREES
