Meaning, Mystery, and Methodology.

Hi! I’m Dave Seah (pronounced “say”), and I write about design and creativity in the context of my desire to be a happier, more productive person. For a living, I work as a freelance educational software developer using video game technologies and methods.I also design productivity tools which I hope to grow into a self-sustaining business.

From a “big picture” perspective, a lot of what I do falls into the following three categories:

Collecting Meaning

I like to know the what and why behind everything so I can find what’s REALLY important. Understanding these is the foundation of not only  storytelling and design, but of empathy and identity as well, which are incredibly important topics.

Following Mystery

I like finding the underlying connections between individuals, their beliefs, and their goals. Not only are they the path to creative problem solving, but they also point the way toward superlative experience.

Applying Methodology

I want my work to be meaningful and excellent, which I believe comes from processes that are driven by what people understand, believe and desire. It’s often not obvious, so I document my process development extensively.
