Years ago I was trying to put a label on myself - design-wise. Labels are stupid, of course, and frustrating. And insidiously addictive. While I protest loudly against them, in the middle of the night I'm susceptible too - what's my design philosophy? I knew I wasn't a minimalist - never that! - but whatever the direct opposite of minimalism is, that would probably describe me. Maximalism? Was that even a thing? Turns out it is, and I would say I'm a type of maximalist - a salvage maximalist.
