Creative Inspiration This Week

This week I was particularly inspired by two talks I listened to. Last Wednesday Meg Lewis visited Hallmark and spoke about her life, career, and work for happy companies. Take a peek at her work and the group of freelance designers she is a part of, Ghostly Ferns. I absolutely love when Hallmark brings in speakers, and couldn't help but jot down a few take-aways:

  • Think about things you've been told are bad about yourself and how you can use those things to change the world. 
  • Maybe if I'm just nice to people I can change the world.
  • I just want to make the world a little bit happier. 
  • Take a look at Grilli Type!!

This week I also listened to the latest episode of the Creative Pep Talk podcast by Andy J. Miller. This episode focused on "How to Prove Your Creative Genius." He talks about stacking the deck in your favor, and proving your creative value again and again. My favorite part of the whole podcast was when he said to not hide behind subjectivity. While creative work is subjective, it's important to put in the effort and slowly spiral upward as your work develops. Go listen!
