It’s summer and in Darma we thought these will be really calm months (speaking from the work perspective). Once again, we were wrong! we have so much work, we are even a little bit stressed. Luckily, this morning came to me this video and it reminded me how important it’s to let things flow. After all, we are made of water, why shouldn’t we be able to adapt and get into the circumstances?
Be water, my friend.
PS: Well, I must also confess that I love the aesthetics of the films of Bruce Lee. Nothing can be so kitsch and yet so inspiring!
Are you a designer? Unless you know all the Creative Suite shortcuts by heart, you are not a “real” designer. If you are not sure of your level, take a look at the pictures below and check how many shortcuts can you recognize (and how many are you using).
Well, if the result was not as good as you thought, you can always start using them now. People from Hongkiat make this process easier, they have created these great wallpapers for Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Flash, so you can learn the shortcuts and get rid of the click-and-search method.
We love Cenário 3D post about the Topaz Design Hotel in Viena. As Austria is not too far from Slovenija, we are thinking about visiting the hotel in person, not sure if we can afford a room there, but for sure we’ll walk around! 😉
More than once I cursed myself for not having another profession, “I should have been an accountant”, “Had to studied philosophy” “Must become a plumber” (and make a lot of money). What? Impossible! I had to dedicate my youth to a profession in which a simple comment can strike down your motivation and mark you for life. All creative professionals remember a heartless teacher or a senseless criticism and despite all, here we are! We can’t imagine ourselves in the shoes of any other professional, we love what we do and we don’t give up!
This is a message to all students and trainees: you are not as bad as they say, and not as good as you think. You can survive and, sometimes, even have fun! The secret? work, work work and work, and, after that, keep on working! And if even then you have “one of those days”, take a break, refresh your ideas and reinforce your motivation with these inspiring and beautiful posters.
NOTE: If you are not a beginner, you will surely encourage yourself too, life’s also hard out there…
