My mentor lovingly called me a Dream Caster. He himself was one as well, and we discussed it at length during quiet days in the design studio that summer. He described it beautifully, though both of us knew it as the flaw that it was. We would laugh about it very seriously, because anything silly was a serious matter in the design studio. We believed in serious fun and laughed at serious flaws.
A Dream Caster and Vision Caster are pretty much the same thing with one difference…one sounds cooler than the other. What we do is having the important job of thinking up pretty good ideas…then throwing them at someone else through a series of well planned obligations and then fleeing for our lives so as to not have anything to do with the idea, thus allowing the obligated individual to run with the idea for us. It’s quite thrilling really. It’s like a relay race.
