Creativity has always been a part of my
life. Some of my earliest memories are of drawing and mark making and it's been
a life long passion that ultimately turned into my profession as a designer.
The recent addition of writing about all things creative has been a
natural and organic extension of my love for what I do.
Don't get me wrong. My practical design work still comes first and I’ve never
intentionally started any of my blogs. Instead, most have been the outcome of
thoughts that I have quickly scribbled into my little ideas book that i carry
everywhere with me or typed into a word doc or the notes on my cell phone. This
note making builds up and eventually turns into something.
Recently the writing seems to have
developed and I've found that it's giving me a lot more substance to my commercial design work. It's helped me to learn, research and read more about my industry
and forces me to ask why a lot more. It's made me more vocal. I love what I do, but the writing and reading seems to add another dimension. And better
still, I get to meet and interact with interesting like minded people. In short,
I feel my writing is making me a better designer!
