Supple Minds

Early in my career I met Gordon Andrews, one of our greatest designers, shortly after his home and personal archive had been destroyed by fire.

In his late seventies, having lost everything, he was enthuisiastic about making a new start - his mind was as curious, nimble, enthusiastic and flexible as a seven-year-old's. His mind was supple.

I use Gordon as a benchmark when I fear that I'm being closed minded. And I seek out people like him to collaborate with.
