I guess being interested in design kind of comes hand in hand with the beard & ﬂannel lumberjack shirt aesthetic. I feel anyone born with the genetic capability of growing a beard (male or female) will no doubt grow up to be part of the creative industry in some way or form, beards are just a nourishment for creativity. That’s a fact for sure. Ask any scientist with a beard. As for me I have no doubt in my mind that if I was to shave, I would no longer be good at design, just like Samson. Luckily, I don’t plan on shaving any time soon, so we are both safe. (plus my beard would kill me for doing so).
