A little bit more than a week ago, I reached my 900th post of my 1000 days of design. I don’t even know how I managed to reach this and now, as I’m in the last 100, I’m wondering if I should continue the project after I reach the thousandth post. My annoying competitive streak is telling me to keep going, but I don’t know if it’s overkill and I should move on to something else.
A lot has happened in the last 100 days. I took part in the Brooklyn Zine Fair (which was seriously the best zine experience I EVER HAD), did a lot of screen printing, started riding my bike again, but most importantly I quit my job at the National Ballet in order to go work at a small studio called Sovereign State
It was a stressful decision for me, but I think it’s one of the best ones I made in my life so far. I am working on projects that I never imagined I would get a chance to be a part of and I finally have the design mentor that I always wanted. I have also been insanely busy with freelance work, including setting up a catalogue of Jack Bush’s work. It’s funny because I still don’t feel like a “real” designer and yet people are trusting me on all these big projects. I’m excited for the future (for once!).
Towards the end of this project my interest in lettering, writing and typography grew exponentially so this new project is specifically focused on that. I’m also going to be launching a separate 100 day project in the new few days so stay tuned!
