The Duality of Freelance
I spoke about this in a recent issue but man is it real. I either have too many clients to handle or none at all haha. I am feeling a little stressed out because I have so much to do and just started an intensive 4-week long client project. I am so excited and of course, the clients pay the bills but with all the personal endeavors I do (Newsletter, youtube, podcast, Instagram, TikTok, etc) It can feel like I'm already booked up the entire week even without clients. I know I'll get through it all but being a freelancer is an interesting dynamic because sometimes you are breezing by and can work at a chill pace and other times the deadlines and work are more intense than any employee job I've ever had.
International Womens Day
Recently was International Women's Day so I wanted to shout out some of my favorite female designers. Go check em out, all do amazing work!
Recently I uploaded a video on YouTube ranking popular fast food logos. I had a lot of fun and it was cool looking more into the different companies that have rebranded. Doing my research got me thinking more again about all the companies who have "modernized" their logos but ended up just making them suck. I am all for a clean and minimal logo but I hate how it has become a trend to turn every single brand into a type only sans serif logo. We all remember how dirty they did Petco. I ask all of you as designers to think outside the box a little bit more and don't just resort to the default or what's trendy. No more y2k cyberpunk logos or Helvetica only logotypes for companies who need something more exciting!
Stuff I currently like and stuff I'm looking forward to!
