Write about your creative and career ideals of where you would like to be in the future. Then meditate on what you’ve written, and pretend you’re there in the now and pay attention to what it feels like physically in your body to be in that place.
There are so many negative stereotypes about being an artist. One of which is the age old “starving artist” persona. Notice when your mind is adopting these self limiting beliefs, and be conscious of challenging them.
The frenetic rhythm of life today makes the image more important than text; it looks faster. The image is the opportunity to conquer new customers. You stop to see something in the image, and then you read the text.
Leave the comfort zone! Experience many different techniques and styles. There are many people who confuse “having their own style” with artistic limitations. If you only know how to do one thing, that’s not style.
Have a healthy work life balance. Many hours are spent sitting in front of the paper or the computer, and you should know how to stop for some physical activity during the day. The profession of design punishes the body a lot. Don’t punish yourself.
Never start a final work of art without having good preliminary first sketches. If there is not a sketch, or the sketch is bad, workflow is wasted because you’re slower and correcting mistakes along the way.
