Sadly we see too many potentially amazing designers stuck by the glass ceiling of time. So they settle on the first solution that looks viable and are never allowed to sweat the details. They are forced to rely on 1% of inspiration without the benefit of perspiration. So this is the dirty little secret in our industry. The best designers and developers rarely have more talent. They simply have more time.
- Does your job title have “design” somewhere?
- How many uninterrupted hours a day do you get for doing “design” work?
- When was the last time you produced the best work you know you are capable of with that number of hours and that level of focus?
