The challenge becomes in thinking ahead when your thinking is overwhelmed. I have experimented with several tools over the past year to help to manage …

Creativity is a gift, it should be given. Making things better is a responsibility that should be taken. Occupational creativity (design) comes with a high level of responsibility to giving of yourself to make things better, more attractive and more appealing without sacrificing yourself and your convictions.

Winter is here in full force where we live, the snow is falling even more than most years in recent memory.

Creative Discipline

In Create by Jared

I think there is high importance to clarifying focus. I have not always been very good at this and instead was willing to tackle any job that required creativity to accomplish. The problem with approaching jobs as problems is that you are in a continual state of problem solving and never have time for mastery. It’s the mastery of a …

How Far Is Too Far

In Create, Resources by admin0 Comments

I am still amazed that ‘professional’ designers still haven’t figured out how far is too far. What I mean is that on a billboard (for example) how big you have to make the letters in order for them to have the impact that you desire. How many billboards have you driven by that have way too much information and all …

Easily Distracted

I think that much of the human race has become easily distracted.
