Turn bad clients into challenging projects.

There have been times when I was tasked to design something that didn’t fit my style and in some cases, I didn’t feel like doing. Saying no may always be an option, but not necessarily the best one. Surprisingly I discovered that by taking on these tasks, the feeling of satisfaction I got after completing them was 10 times better than doing designs within my comfort zone. However, the first couple of times this happened, I noticed the increased struggle of coming up with new ideas. A very stressful situation that I managed to overcome by shifting my mindset a bit.

Looking back on old designs.

Sometimes I can’t believe that it’s been 12 years since I created my very first website. To be more specific, it’s hard to wrap my head arround how much things have changed in the WWW. I remember my first steps on Dreamweaver, fighting with tables and trying to cut, crop and paste images from Photoshop to fit needs that HTML couldn’t produce – at least not in an easy way. But these days are gone now. HTML is more powerful and CSS really bridged the gap between what you see in Photoshop and what you can actually code.
