Do you ever feel down, as if you’re in the wrong profession? Most of us, at one point or other, question if we’ve made the right decisions. I have. That’s when it helps me to draw upon what inspires me about the role I’ve chosen.
There’s an interesting Source of Inspiration group project on Vivien’s website, so I decided to write a few thoughts. So here’s a brief insight into what inspires me.
Everything around me, from the smallest leaf as it drops from a tree to the tallest building on a stormy day. From a flame in a fire to the swell of the Irish sea. Depending upon the brief, all visual objects can form the basis of a graphic design project. Nothing should be discarded from thought when brainstorming.
I’m inspired by my family, by the support they’ve given me and by the warmth they show. I’m inspired by those who struggle through starvation from day to day without ever knowing what it’s like to feel full up.
The whole process from start to finish is why I’m involved in graphic design. From the initial creative thought to a photograph of the finished article.
What inspires you?
I know Vivien would appreciate your contribution to her project.
Alternatively, I’d love it if you left a little nugget in the comment thread below.
