Twelve days and no work. It’s been so long since I’ve had that much time off. It was amazing to get to an end point on several big projects, wrap things up, and head out the door. No emails, no deadlines, no conference calls, etc. Now back in office, getting caught up on things, I feel a huge sense of reset. The potential of what’s to come is what I love most about being an independent designer, and there’s a lot of that looking out over the horizon. New clients and collaborations to work with, new issues to take on, and new skills to learn. Rested and refreshed, a big reset makes all the newness that much more exciting. So much new energy, so many possibilities. Let’s get to it.
