The pain is real, too real! The Creative Pain is what I call this painful, tedious and beautiful journey of a career. It's a lifestyle that consist of design, illustration, product creation and the constant push of your abilities.
But why call it the Creative Pain? It's because It's the painful truth about design. Design isn't about pushing around pixels and making eye candy. It's about letting design speak for itself. Creating experiences for seamless interactions or engagements is the constant goal. And these systems don't always come easy, but from determination comes break-through. Thus the Creative Pain helps explain those break-through moments as quintessential pieces to great design.
So what drives myself as a designer? It's the pain. The pain of pushing all of my abilities to it's limits and continuing to grow further from each project. It's only from putting in the time and continuing to strive for progression that I then feel this creative rush, that anything is possible. living for this creative break-through is part of that journey. I hope to continue this journey with the help of every project or task in front of me.
