A New Something for Everything

Hello everyone! It’s been a few minutes. Well, quite a few minutes. I know I fell off the face of the earth, and for good reasons. Notice that it was plural. There were a plethora of reasons that my existence remained for the most part, off the grid.

I went through some very huge changes, and more hardships than anyone can imagine. Sure, there have been some very small, meaningful events that have taken place. But the hardships that I have endured have outweighed anything that I or anyone could possibly fathom right now.

Life went upside-down almost overnight a couple of years back that had forced me to look for other avenues of work. With the industry already saturated with competition and not enough positions available, I had no other choice that to take a hiatus from design and change industries. Rather than continue on with my career as a designer, I was forced into a job that just doesn’t fit me. I stuck with it for almost two years, however I have no lifestyle other than sleep, eat, and work for 11-14 hours a day and not get any sort of development out of it. There is no progression. It’s just not who I am and it’s not for me. It’s doing more harm than good. I’m not here to gripe about the job that I am holding right now to keep my household going. I’m here to redefine myself and get back on scope.

New Things

Many new things are happening right now as I make an attempt to reignite my career. With new things come new ideas, with those new ideas comes progression and development. Here are a few things that are breaking right now:

  1. New Website: Yes! I have a new website through a new host as many can probably see. I’m being hosted through Squarespace which has been a lifesaver in the sense of building a very attractive website. I saved a bunch of time, since time has been very minimal in order to get a professional portfolio posted, along with other things. I have some more plans in the future and post about that when the time comes.

  2. New Design Principles: I’ve adopted Scandinavian minimalism principals into my designs and website. Over the next couple of weeks, I will be posting some new work that I have been working on to add to my portfolio. It’s not for any particular client, but rather to get a foothold in the right direction for my design techniques.

  3. New Outlook: I’m redeveloping myself not just as a designer, but to redevelop myself as an individual. I have changed a lot over the last couple of years and I feel I have a lot of improvement to look forward to. I need to make improvements not just in the work that I do, but also with my lifestyle choices, the influences that surround me, and my overall wellness.

  4. Blogs: I’m actually going to post blogs regularly. I have a list of topics that I want to post about that I think would be pretty interesting, but also post about clients, work, and other things that are related to my career.
