    depends on what drugs, and who is taking it.

    I think being a designer makes you a better drug taker. You aught to see the quality of my joints

    I was going to say only designer who use drugs call themselves Rock Stars ... but that might just be cocaine.

    Sans the blog thread's own.

    amphetamines help you work faster and longer and sometimes clearer... things like pot and booze help you loosen up and have fun. Pot also is good when you need to get lost in something repetitive [like making clipping paths]... but the ultimate answer — no...

    • I think I have to agree with you here.sherman1/4

    What drugs?

    Drugs is a pretty broad catch-all spectrum of things with an equally broad set of effects.

    Smoking a joint makes me lazy and makes me not want to concentrate on anything in particular and i just feel like chilling.

    However, it's always when i'm really stoned and lying in bed trying to sleep that i've come up with my best ideas or solutions to design/flash problems etc.

    my roomie used to do some ADD meds before a night of copy writing.

    if you consider having ADD not being able to focus on writing when u have a football game and the stereo on. then i think everyone has ADD.

    Definitly. It makes me a better person too. The only issue is that drugs are expensive. But it definitly helps me getting better, more productive and friendlier. So yes, I recommend every aspiring designer to use more drugs.

    depends what your designing also.. and what drugs you are taking.
    i hear hammer isnt very useful in coming up with super complex designs.
