Don’t you hate it when you pay through the teeth for a service and things don’t exactly go like you would like them to? If only you had some say into those matters.

Only one problem here. Even though you got the right ideas, what would derail the implementation of those ideas would be a lack of assistance or professional training.
The question inevitably becomes – what to do when I got no training? Luckily enough, the intersection between human intuitiveness and technological progress has given birth to DIY Design philosophy. More correctly, it’s a philosophical-and-practical aspect rolled into one.
The DIY Design philosophy foresees a world where you and you alone have all those easy-to-use tools to design your dream idea.
