Design work has been a long, hard journey for me. Trying to find out where I fit in the world has been difficult. I spent so much time, energy, and heart trying to figure out how others where doing it, and thinking it was the only way. Because of this, I missed out on the key point. To be myself! When I do ‘me’, is when I create my best work.
I don’t question.
I don’t struggle.
It’s so important to be yourself. I’ve gained so much self love and confidence as I have figured out who Designer Rachel is. Designer Rachel loves ugly colors, that don’t match, but somehow pull together to something beautiful. Designer Rachel is punny. Designer Rachel loves to vectorize drawings and fill them in. Designer Rachel loves to add little designs in the weirdest places. Designer Rachel loves some weird crap. I really like her.
That’s why it’s so important to be yourself. If you become what you like, you’ll like you! Last I checked, that’s a pretty big deal! Bee. YOU. Tiful.
