I hemmed and hawed about the best way to start this blog - what to say, how to write it - and finding the right content for this very first post seems to be the hardest (at least I hope) . Then, I came across this video that I loved - and knew it would be the perfect way to kick off the blog. It was designed by Saar Oz using text from a 2009 interview with Ira Glass. It reminds me very much of my own start in design and letterpress techniques and resonates even to this day.
Creativity is a constantly evolving talent and even the best are always growing and enhancing their styles. While this blog is a new adventure for me, the reminder that we all start at the beginning gave me just the boost of confidence I needed to kick it off. I took the message to create as much as I can, as often as I can to heart - so expect many more updates and new projects to come soon!
