Listen Now

Real talk. Real designers. When you can’t decide whether you should take on the new project that you’re being offered, who do you call? Fellow BOD™ members, of course! Kimberley sent up an SOS and designers Laura Elliott and LeAnne Bunnell stepped up to help.

In this episode we learn:

  • stretching creativity can be a good thing
  • constraints sometimes foster creativity
  • saying yes to one project means saying no to other things, personal or professional
  • ask yourself if the project will consume too much psychic energy
  • be aware of feeling compelled to take a project
