Swim in your Own Current

As a creative person and or a person in general we tend to not follow what we enjoy. By that I mean we follow what is so called trendy at the time. Then we conform our mentality and work to be cool. But don’t let me come across as I am saying it is bad.

What I am saying is that you should stay in your own lane. Staying in your own lane aka swimming in your own current. Instead of following doing what everyone else is doing do your own thing. There’s nothing wrong with following trends but if you do it your own way you’ll stand out more.

Which will show you basically putting your own mix on what is trendy. Then you’ll have people copying what you are doing. When people start copying you, you know that you are doing something right.

So do not be afraid to stay in your own lane and or swimming in your own current. The fear is nothing to be afraid of. Especially standing out and doing things your own way, that’ll be more fulfilling than just following what society puts upon you.

How to trust your judgement as a graphic designer

The judgment of not knowing if our work is good enough. The judgement of will the client like what we produced. The judgement of will the product I’ve sent out be received well.
The fear of not doing a good enough job is normal. You have to learn how to trust yourself and believe in your work. I know doing such a thing is difficult to do.

But overtime the more you began to trust yourself your judgement will be stronger. For example with venturing into a new field of creativity you first doubt your beginner pieces. Well I for one did doubt mine. Then overtime the more you practice and develop your confidence you began to know that looks good and what does not. By practicing and developing your skills your judgement gets stronger.

When your judgement gets stronger and you began to trust yourself, don’t be mean to other creative individuals. If you are critiquing work give them a solution on how it could be better. If they do not ask for a critique then keep it to yourself. I say such a thing because you do not know what are the options they had to work with and etc.

So with everything said you must trust yourself in your judgement. Therefore you will be able to have the trust of judgement from others.

The Fear of Creativity

The fear of losing creativity and the fear of losing it all has scared me. Till this day I still do get scared about losing my creativity. But I learned that creativity is not just a thing that will go away. ¬†What I mean by that is creativity from my point of view it’s something that is constantly developed.
We all have creative abilities whether we’d like to believe it or not. There is a difference between those who continually use their creativity and those who don’t. You want to nurture your creativity and constantly improve it. If you don’t use your skills and or gifts they will not be of much use to you.

While fear may be such a strong thing to experience. Do your best to not let it bother you and hold you back.
