A few mad weeks of being buried in the a design project for OMF UK’s short term mission program have come to an end and I find myself with some breathing room.
I really believe this time is important and like all rest it is important to make the most of. I think as creative people, musicians, designers, film makers, actors we can spend so much time stressing about what we are doing that we do not stop, have a break and ensure we will be able to keep it up.
Now we can’t just down tools very often and even with a series of big deadlines passed I still have various things to do including things pushed aside by this urgent work, however I think it is important to keep yourself going as a creative by taking time to enjoy the work of others, don’t just sitting and stressing about your own.
For me the blogs of people like Philip Bloom and Salomon Ligthelm are good places to be challenged and inspired. Websites such as designspiration.net and design-milk.com/ are also refreshing places too. Just taking time to see what others are up to really helps get me ready for my next big slog!
