Of all the places you’d think that a dev takes his inspiration from, the music/rap apparel industry would be the last. It isn’t! I really admire both of these guys and this interview comes to emphasize that they still have a lot of things to share.

Here are some quotes that are aligned with my beliefs and that express what I feel… probably better than I can:

  • “It was incredibly tough, but the passion for the project pushed me through. If your project doesn’t do that for you, well, maybe you need to sit down and revaluate.”
  • “Everyone has an idea, but it’s taking those first steps toward turning that idea into a reality that are always the toughest.”
  • “If you don’t know how to do something, find someone who does.”
  • “Sewing is an ability; manufacturing is a knowledge.” – I see a lot of parallels with this one.. it’s not about sewing at all 😉

Making things that matter is hard, and it’s the way it should be! Nothing beautiful and worthwhile is ever easy!
