I was reading Gem Barton’s book last night ‘Don’t Get a Job…Make a Job’, a very inspiring book exploring case studies of a generation that have applied their own strategies to create their own practices, works , studio, agencies etc. in the ever competitive field with fewer positions for many creatives and designers. I will highly recommend this book if you seek inspiration and a strategic approach in applying yourself and craft. The array of case studies carried out by Gem Barton is very impressive.
Reading through I came across Lionel Real de Azúa quote which I thought was very true especially if you are constantly incapacitated by fear of failure and overthinking. I find the latter being a case that plagues me to be candid. I can think my ideas to death. By applying yourself, doing, trial and error begets unexpected results.
I thought I’d post the solution to last week’s word search puzzle. Never a bad idea to step out of pressure situations to seek inspiration elsewhere. Best practices and genius ideas sometimes come from looking at the unfamiliar and engaging in things that reliefs the mind of the everyday hassle.
Inspiration comes from everywhere, besides, a relax mind is a more creative and productive one I guess!
