Design is never easy and I’m not running my business like an automobile assembly line where production is of the up most importance and you have to reach an everyday target. My motto is quality over quantity and I have difficulty to let things go because I obsess over details. I consider that to be an asset instead of a flaw. To be honest I’ve thought about it to lower the bar a bit and start thinking that I could earn more by finishing things more quickly but that’s just not me. Personal satisfaction is really important and it helps in bringing out the best in you.
— I obsess over details too and I often thought of it as a weakness. I struggled with expressing what am I doing or thinking about for so long and why that is any good. Now I’ll find it easier to explain to clients why too much deadline pressure might affect my inspiration and the way I like to work. These posts by Veerle are worth reading and are helpful to those who want a different (maybe) perspective on the deadlines and design.
