New Course

It takes ennui and a desire to move onward and upward to kick me out of a rut. As much as I love Photoshop and Illustrator and InDesign (oh, how I love InDesign), I recognize that as long as I hone the tools, I will be nothing more than the-person-behind-the-computer. I crave complex discussion and the excitement of implementing ideas; something I am not getting at work.

Recently I dove head-first into my introvert (on the MBTI I am an INFP) and mucked around in the sludge that pooled in my depths and I discovered a diamond that needed polishing. I do so enjoy design work but even more, I am discovering a deep affection for (oh no!) branding. Designing brand identity.

And so I embark on my next project. I am developing a personal course that will challenge me and in the end I plan on having a solid brand identity that clearly identifies me and my career goals.

My homework for this week is to develop a syllabus that will guide me and that will have all the fun things in it I enjoy doing; research, self-evaluations, reading, projects, field trips, WRITING and, oh, I don’t know, other fun stuff.

So look out ennui. It’s time to get moving.
