Creativity in design carries one to an intuitive edge. The Tao of Design puts the complex process into a spiritual perspective. Adapted from the ancient book, The Tao Te Ching, author Carl Garant shows how design has symbolism. Every design has meaning and leaves an openness to interpretation and reactions. All designs hold different mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual meanings unique to everyone.
The Tao of Design lets you relax and pace yourself. Through reflection, you will draw upon your inner resources and potential. As you free up pressure from external forces, your creativity will flourish. Once you tap into your creative spirit, ideas will flow through you, transforming into creative designs.
Creativity and content have character and will have different understandings to different people. A design may get recognition and appreciation, but even the artist sometimes can not define the symbol. The Tao of Design will open up your conscious and subconscious abilities to create as you find inspiration.

“Carl Garant relentlessly challenges us, like a Philip Glass musical score, to pursue meaning and purpose in design and nature; each page reveals a single facet of the whole, which is life itself.” Edward J. Zagorski, Professor Emeritus
