I spruced up the blog a bit. It’s not really a redesign because I don’t have time for that, but sometimes you just get tired of looking at the same thing. I really do, however, have to redesign my portfolio because it’s just so outdated and in a state of stripped out mish-mash, but when you’re busy working on work that, if you weren’t busy you’d need the portfolio for to get more work, there isn’t any time and motivation for a redesign. If you know what I mean.
Speaking of work, I had an interesting 2 weeks of working on something that I thought I loathed. It was one of those projects where I heard myself say yes and then 10 minutes later was hitting myself on the head thinking, why did I do that? It gave me a bit of anxiety, but in the process of working through these conceptual visual problems, I realized that it was sort of interesting and at the very least, different from what I had been doing for my last few client projects. In that sense it was refreshing and I’m not really afraid of it anymore.
February. So I kind of lied when I said I didn’t have any goals for this year. I actually do, but they aren’t written down anywhere because then it would seem like it was official, but I am in fact still feeling the pressure that I haven’t worked towards making any of these goals a reality. I can’t help but feel like the year is already slipping away because it’s FEBRUARY. But when this winter has been so very mild – probably the mildest winter I can remember here in NY – it’s just easy to get Spring Fever when it’s 60 degrees out. Who wants to design product labels and source materials when it’s so much more fun walking around the city, having more dinner with girlfriends and hanging out with your family on a weekend day?
Yeah, not me.
But I also don’t want to feel like I’m not going anywhere or making any kind of progress towards more interesting work.
Oh, the conundrum.
