Herb Lubalin is and always will be my #1 inspiration. I was first introduced to his work at a college course. We were assigned to do a presentation based on your favorite designer. After some research his work just stunned me, the use of typography and the bold style. Till this day his work remains timeless and hard to top.
Even thought I wasn’t able to appreciate his work while he was still alive, I was able to purchase his entire magazine collection, Avant Garde. It gave me a better understanding of his work direction which continues to be my everyday inspiration.
Who is your favorite designer?
Happy to report I’ve gained tremendous experience using WordPress.org… Funny thing is now I realize I set up my blog in the .com site ha! Today was a cool day at work. A full time job gives you the security of having stable income, but not so much freedom. I never really wanted the 5-9 life, I don’t think that’s the direction I’m going. But I do know that at this very moment I’m at the right place. As mentioned on my previous post, life is about connecting the dots and this is one I’m happy to fulfill. There are a couple ideas running through my mind lately. One of them is starting my own business, but how does one get there? Since graduation I’ve managed to have a successful career and expand my knowledge in Web Design & Web Development, basically creating a second career for myself. There are some things in life you just know. You don’t have to be the best student at class, or get all A’s. When you’re good at something and you do it with passion, everything flows… Money, happiness, fulfillment.
Is the way I feel about starting a business, I know I have the ability and the power within me to make it happen, it’s just a matter of taking the next step. With this blog I want to share part of that process. Tonight out of all nights I strongly felt about writing something about my plans and ambitions. I’d love to create a fun inspiring blog, that serves as motivation to others that are in the same situation; Well let’s not call it situation, is a phase of life, a phase where one gets ready to take that next step. It’s a matter of trusting your intuition and making it happen.
I hope that soon I can share more of this exciting idea that’s been on my mind for the last 8 months. If something has been in your mind for that long you have to do something about it. That’s the universe taking you in the direction where you want to be.
Thank you for the taking the time to read, and I hope I’ve inspired you with this post in some way. It is only the begining…
