How to build self-confidence
Failure is embarrassing and demoralizing, but don’t let it stop you. Be willing to accept the situation and learn from it.
So when you fail, ask yourself: Knowing what you know now, what will you do differently in the future?
Remember the rule, the more you can embrace change, the more resilient you become towards future challenges.
Honor your identity and perspective, сreate content that you like, first of all. And do it for yourself first, be passionate about what you do, and people will follow you.
For example, as all our designers are individuals, we always choose projects based on the skills and desires of each team member.
It’s trite but practice and produce high-quality work. It’s what will get you noticed and make you stand out from all your competitors in a crowded field.
So never stop learning, and remember that professionalism has no limits.
Trust your gut and follow curiosity. It will allow you to discover things about yourself, your desires, and the world around you.
Don’t settle. Chase what you love. And remember, every chapter in your story will add up. None of it is a waste of time.
A desire to be taken seriously early in our career can often inhibit us, but experienced designers remember how important it is to play, as well.
The more joy you put into a project, the more joy comes out. Don’t try to be too serious. Deep into the project and fill it with emotions.
Pablo Picasso famously stated, “Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.”
When you’ve been in the creative industry long enough, you come to realize that motivation won’t be there all the time. You have to try and make an effort to create something beautiful.
This is about getting experience at the beginning of your journey. Make the most of your internship.
Be on time, work hard, be available and be flexible — ready to try new things. This is where you’re earning your reputation in the industry you’ve got your eyes on.
A quality portfolio is a window onto your talent, professionalism, and self-awareness — bloated portfolios dilute your best work.
Hasty portfolios with spelling errors will be ignored — and the standard for self-presentation has never been higher.
People who stand still stagnate. Forward progression is everything if you are to develop a long-lasting career.
Radical shifts in career or projects that initially seem too challenging can be terrifying, but the stock cliche — we regret what we didn’t do in life, not what we did — holds pretty true for creatives looking back on their careers.
Education, training, and logic are essential skills, but our instincts often provide the magic.
The better we get at listening to our inner voice, the better we can harness the power of our instincts. And if you suspect something’s wrong with your design but don’t know what it is, take it apart and start again.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
