This has been my mantra.
I’ve always struggled to develop my own style. I feel like I take a little from here, borrow a little from there. I’m not sure I’m there yet but to paraphrase Sinatra “I’m gonna do it my way”
This is the phrase that catches me. I find that I’m constantly fighting with the duality of these two words, forever looking to X out that comma. One of my greatest assets as a designer is that I rarely “wait” for inspiration. I just do, and keep on doing until something takes shape. Sometimes the list of “looks like shit” gets long but at least it’s removing bad ideas from the pile (Thomas Edison has a couple monumental quotes on this).
