The design world used to be complicated back in the day. Who’s doing what? What are the color trends? Who can I kiss up to so I can move my career forward? Let me use Google as a knowledge bible – uggg! I love the saying, “I wish I knew then what I know now,” because I wouldn’t have done any of that!
I know we all have our lessons to learn in life and have to experiment with the tools that are available to us; that is how we learn and move up the corporate ladder. Don’t get me wrong, I loved walking the walk and talking the talk.
I loved when I met Jackie Jordan, The director of color marketing for Sherwin-Williams. It was like I finally got inside the color wheel of my industry. Many of the big wigs of the industry there, and meeting them and chatting about color was definitely solid in my career.
Also, being featured in STIR magazine, another Sherwin Williams, was an honor for me and was definitely on my bucket list.
I look back on my color career, now in my 4th decade of design, and it was and still is amazing. Of course, I wouldn’t do anything different, but now, I see and design way differently than I did back then. I use my intuition.
Especially since I design virtually 100% of the time, intuition is more important than ever. I thank the universe for training me in virtual design WAY before Covid arrive3 t so I was 100% all lined up for that and not effect at all; as a matter of fact, my clientele grew over the past few years for that reason alone.
To answer the question, “Where Does My Inspiration Come From” it call comes from within. Sure, I’m inspirited by dreams and the elements around me, but I do have such a strong sense and trust in myself that it just unfolds for me, and I’m so very grateful!
Now life seems more simple, easy, and more connected. I love it! I guess that’s bound to happen after decades of practice (giggle).
Anyway, it’s just been an amazing week of color, spirit, and design, and I wanted to share a bit of my world with you. Have questions? I’d love to answer them!
