What to Do with Design Stuff?

“Did you know you are more likely to be a hoarder if you are a graphic  designer than not? So says an independent survey conducted by me in  February 2011, when I sampled five people—two of which practiced graphic  design and three not. The former were stuffed with stuff. As a hoarder,  your hoardings may be neatly and efficiently preserved in expensive  acid-free boxes (48 percent of all those queried). Or they may be spread  around, randomly filed, stuffed in nooks and crannies (most others).  Yet either way, whether anal or anarchic, it is a pseudo-scientific fact  that design stuff has a way of growing out of control and beyond  rationality…”  —Steven Heller
