“Creativity is a crushing chore and a glorious mystery. The work wants to be made, and it wants to be made through you.”

Elizabeth Gilbert

I always get asked questions by aspiring design students about my journey. Where did I start, what keeps me going, what is the process of how I create…

I recently answered these questions and more in an interview for Creativepool.

WHAT I WAS ASKED...

• How did you get into the industry?
• Where are you based now and who do you work for?
• If you weren’t in your current industry, what would you be doing?
• Can you explain your creative process?
• What’s your secret to staying inspired and motivated?
• What’s the work achievement you’re most proud of?
• How do you recharge away from the office?
• What advice would you give to other aspiring creatives looking for work?
• If you could change one thing about the industry, what would it be?
