At the end of the day, I'm not designing for the design community. That's like saying, well I think I'll cook for Wolfgang Puck tonight instead of my own family. If design is a specialty, then I'm designing for people who need good visual communication. So I take inspiration from my own family and friends who aren't in the art community. If they can't understand a project, then I haven't done my job.
(Plus, Wolfgang would sneer at my frozen chicken and storm out of the kitchen. ;) )
