For me, minimalism is a subtractive process.
Behind this facade of minimalism is a mess.
What differentiates the people who succeed is that they're the ugly ducklings who dare to fly even though they know that people are going to laugh at them one way or another 'cause they know that they're going to grown up like a swan because they're going to learn from every laugh, every interaction with other people.
Clients are the difference between design and art.
If you fail at something and you truly attempted it, it's still a success. You're just going to have to do it a few more times.
Do work for things you believe in.
It can be really uncomfortable to work with someone who comes from a different background than you have, but you'll end up with a better product and the bottom line will be better.
The reality is if we keep up this status quo in the media, this huge gender gap left behind the scenes and on the screen, we're not gonna move the needle towards equal representation in congress, in the boardroom, in the C-suite, in the stem fields... Because if our young people are not seeing it, it's almost impossible for them to be "it".
Attitudes are caught, not taught.
