Good Effin Design Advice

By on September 9, 2013

The guys from Good F&^%ing Design Advice are out on tour! I had the pleasure of attending their Denver presentation. They offered good advice, indeed! I now proudly display my autographed poster in my freelance office and I’m more motivated than ever.

Advice I took away from this presentation:

Make use of your gifts and not just your capabilities.
Experience is that thing that comes AFTER you need it.
Courage is the ability to acknowledge your fears and move forward anyway.
Risk everything, expect nothing, and prepare for anything.

ALWAYS F#%$ING DELIVER.
CARVE YOUR OWN F#%$ING PATH.
BELIEVE IN YOUR F#%$ING SELF.
BE F#%$ING VISIONARY.
DESIGN IS A F#%$ING LIFESTYLE.
QUESTION F#%$ING EVERYTHING.
OWN YOUR F#%$ING FAILURES.
SANS F#%$ING SERIF.

In addition to offering advice, we got to hear their story. They shared a lot of the obstacles that they had to overcome. It was really inspiring to hear about all the challenges they faced and how they worked through them with a little hard work and determination.
