When starting out as a creative I was unsure in the direction and path I wanted to take. I didn’t know if designing logos was my area, if creating print artwork for nightclubs was where I belonged or if photography was my life long dream and I just didn’t know it yet, the choices was endless.
I decided to speak to a few different people in the creative areas I had interests in and I started to notice that they was all telling me the same thing, which was "don’t try and do everything, specialise in only one area".
Being a new creative, I believed them and took the information on board, being the hyperactive, knowledge craving, new born creative I once was but months and even years passed and that information those people gave me, started to fade away in the back of my mind and become more and more irrelevant to my own vision and goals.
Maybe for what those guys had in mind and for their own career plan that was what made sense but for me, I became a creative because I love to express, create and input my imagination into the world, I decided to travel the creative path so I could feel free, not limit myself and make myself feel trapped to one certain area.
I believe being a creative is all about feeling free in your work, creating and working in the areas you enjoy and have a passion for.
This idea of restricting yourself to one certain area doesn’t make sense to me, maybe to others but I think if I want to design a logo one day, shoot some photography the next and then create a music artists album cover the week after, I’ll do that because that’s what I enjoy and that’s the type of creative I am.
Never stop learning, do more of what you enjoy and remain the creative hustler that you are !
