I liked this article! Great way to demonstrate less reliance on tools and more about what kind of people go into design. It's inspiring to see that as log as you have a design mindset, anything is possible really.
My only note is to add "(kidding)" on the age line even though you solve it on the next line. While only 32, and usually not triggered by age remarks I almost didn't read the last 6-7 lines of the article because I assumed you might actually have a bias. Before I gave the rest of the article a chance, my brain wanted to discredit the entirety of the article.
Not saying you do! It was a great article and I'm glad I kept reading. I can be wrong :) perception is wild lol.
