Risk it All
Q: I’m a graphic design student and have dreams of being self-employed when I graduate. I want freedom but don’t know if all the pressures of starting a studio may get too much and dominate some of the best years of my life. I’m hungry for adventure but worry if I fail it might tarnish future opportunities. Should I risk it and go for it early on, or get a job in an established studio, learn some stuff - then go for it?
Design is a process, not a product.
The joy of the creative process, minute by minute, hour after hour, day by day, is the sublime path to true happiness.
