As a designer and with anyone who does freelance work the job is can be very fulfilling but very lonely at the same time. I often ask myself am I doing this right, are there other people going through what I am going through, or how are they handling their job on a daily bases? So I decided that I wanted to share my experience of being in a creative field. I wanted to share an inside look of what I deal with from the struggles to the success. I also wanted to share some of my processes with the hopes of helping other designers with their journey.
When I thought about this I began to question who I am as a designer. I know I have come a long way in my design career but I also have a looonnng way to go to reach some of the goals I have set for myself. So I wondered how could I give advise to other designers when I still consider myself to be new to this creative business. So I decided that I wanted to open up the Designer Diaries to others who are in the creative field.
The Designer Diaries will consist of a series of post from me talking about what goes on in my life on a daily bases as I work towards my goals as a Surface Pattern Designer. It will also feature a host of designer (fashion, photography, illustration, surface pattern, and graphic design) sharing about their journey as an artist/designer. Designers will have a choice of sharing details about their creative career in an interview, sharing a peek inside of their creative space, what inspires them to create and lastly a look at their workflow!
I am very excited about this series! I'm excited to share more of what I'm passionate about and I am excited to connect with other designers and allow them another platform to share their passions through.
