So for me, I’ve been in the game for what seems to be a short time but it’s now over a decade. I’m proud of what I’ve learned along the road, the people, hardships, the countless hours of problem solving. Whether it be for a client or just trying to expand my skills, there might have been a few expletives while figuring things out but it was all a part of the journey.
Some call it the process, some call it following your path but either way you say it’s going to take hard work to get where you want to go. My biggest saying I say to myself is “learn to learn” and what I mean by that is to become a student when lacking information needed to complete and or start something. The ladder part of that “learn” is learning how to apply your new information to help better the overall process you’re doing. This applies to all aspects of my life from working out, mountain bike riding, university, sports and keeping with the house.
I’m a big fan of my environment giving me inspiration to help drive most of my creativity. Of course we all have our websites, Instagram accounts, Facebook etc to look at. When you are walking, biking and or driving by something that “thing” makes you turn your head, that’s what gives me a raw idea to do something or try something. I try to keep that mindset as it helps me not get too closed into one box sort of speak and be able to help me create/think and adapt to a changing graphic world.
