Advice for designers
My favorite parts:
1. Design does not equal client work.
2. Take things away until you cry.
This second piece of advice applies to all aspects of marketing. If the thing (picture or word) doesn’t add to the message, then take it away. I often run into this when writing words. I used too many.
Sometimes I write a sentence, fall in love with it, and leave it. Even though it doesn’t add anything to it.
Cut until you cry.
And for the record, I posted this because if you’re a writer all this applies. Expect for the parts about drawing. Even though they do.
