Find inspiration in the expected and the unexpected. Immerse your day to day with books, beautiful people, bright colors, delicious food, creative music, nature and interesting ideas. Don’t sit around waiting for inspiration to hit you as you stare at a blank wall – go out and experience something!
Don’t compare yourself – try not to let other people’s looks, preferences, or accomplishments discourage you, instead – learn from those who are succeeding around you and stay true to your natural style and instincts.
If you are trying to design and are hitting a road block – go out and grab a couple magazines. Cut out your favorite pictures and tack them onto a foam or cork board with pantone cards and sticky notes. Get a coffee. Listen to a song and eat something that you like. Draw. Repeat. You will come up with something.
