In response to Raphael’s question; What you say really hits a
problem that I have had forever. I know that the famous designers
have a signature style and I agree that it seems to be a hallmark of
professionalism. Frustratingly for myself I have found it extremely
difficult to come up with a style of my own that is consistent.
There are so many styles that are amazing and enjoyable and I find
it hard to settle on one particular style for everything, and of
course this leads to a hodgepodge look when laying out all of my
work side by side. Maybe it’s an inability to focus on my part, I
get bored easily and want to try new things all of the time. Maybe
it is a commitment issue, having to choose and then think what if
it’s wrong and feel stuck with it. Would having a BFA be a way to
foster a style? (Or would therapy help! LOL) On the plus side, most
of my work has been one of a kind custom work which lets me be
versatile and flexible enough to work with a variety of people.
Thanks for any comments on this, Marta
