Thanks to everyone who listened to me complain about my lack of sleep! The KidsBlast animation is complete and added to my portfolio. Take a look, leave me some feedback. I’d love to hear what you think.View Video
It’s easy to get burnt out in the design field. All day long we create according to someone else’s standards, expectations and even taste. I was recently inspired by an article I read by GoMediazine on Hannes Beer’s All Day Everyday project. Check it out here.
It’s all about getting back to the reason you got into graphic design to begin with – it’s fun, it’s creative, colorful, inspiring and had endless boundaries. It’s about creating a design, everyday, just for you. Whether it’s to learn a new skill, polish up a rusty one, or just getting out that idea you’ve been holding on to. You can spend an hour on it, or the whole day – you can sketch it, draft it, or design on the fly. Whatever works for you, right then, everyday.
So I’m doing it – actually both Arlo and I are doing it. For ourselves. It’s been a point of conversation and a challenge to each other. It’s been fun, and different, and harder than I thought! We are 14 days in… I’ll share projects along the way. I’m thinking about making a postcard series out of the ones that turn out the best. We’ll just have to wait and see if that inspires me when we get to it!
