As a designer/creative failure is not just an option but an essential part of the creative process. If I’m not failing I’m not really trying. I would love to provide a sure fire formula for getting rid of the discomfort. All I can say is that the career of a freelance designer is anything but safe and predictable. In the end I was surprised to learn that really failing is not all that bad. After failure… I’m still here. That is probably one of the best feelings I’ve had this year. Being strong when everything goes wrong actually feels really good. It’s worth the risk.
