When unexpected events happen

“Nothing is so painful to the human mind as a great and sudden change.”
― Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, Frankenstein.

I am someone who has a structured work schedule. I plan my days and weeks out in advance and like, when things go according to plan. When my schedule gets thrown out of balance by unexpected events, this can cause some inner turmoil.

Why I don’t follow trends

3D Lettering Class Series Thumbnails

I love sharing what I’ve learned, no matter how obscure it is or how small the target audience may be. Because at the end of the day, I make what I am interested in.

MOTION GRAPHICS TEMPLATES FOR COLOUR SCHEMES

When I was little, I wanted to be a fashion designer. I remember that I would spend my time taking sewing classes and going to extra curricular sewing clubs.

At my first junior role, I discovered the term “artworker” – someone who executes designs, rather than comes up with them.

Pivot When The Occasion Calls For It

Blog Announcement PNG 16x9

As a freelance designer I am taught to regard social media as the target marketing strategy. Post quality content, post regularly, post often. As many of you, I have been pushing forward to build an audience on Instagram and other platforms. It feels like, one is constantly fighting against the algorithm. Trying blindly what works, not knowing which of the parameters were the winning ones, that got the post to succeed or underperform.

How to create accountability

I would like to thank Stina Jones for allowing me to animate her cute little character. It was a lot of fun! I love collaborating with other artists, as it gives me the opportunity to bring their designs to life in the form of animation. But how do you create accountability for yourself on solo passion projects?
