Creatives: Do This When You're Feeling Like Crap

If the current struggle in your creative career has broken you down, crushed your spirit, somehow made you assume you don’t have anything to contribute to the world, and that there’s nothing unique about you, then do yourself a favor and try this:

Ask your mom to develop a UX wireframe.

Ask your neighbor to design a brand identity.

Ask your roommate to write product copy.

Ask your dad to create an editorial illustration.

Ask your bestie to direct a photo or video shoot.

Ask literally anyone you know to take a piece of crap creative brief from a client and magically turn it into an amazing creative campaign that makes complete strangers take deliberate and immediate action.

How do you think ANY of that would go?


Still think you aren’t unique? That you aren’t amazing and creative and talented? That you don’t see things differently and no one deserves to hear your ideas and see your work?


Because this world absolutely REQUIRES your unique talent, your perspective, and your creative spark. YOU are literally the only one who can do what YOU do. And we NEED that.

Now, get out there and make it happen. Don’t stop to question your worth. Only stop to enhance it.

To get help.

To strengthen your approach.

To sharpen your focus.


And for the love of all that is Pantone, JUST. KEEP. GOING.
