Day 22 of marchmeetthemaker is “proud of,” and I think what I’m currently proud of is how I’m starting to feel really secure and confident in my brand’s specific aesthetic, style, and general vibe! It may not be apparent, but this is something I struggled with a lot early on- just getting everything to work together in a cohesive way, that was ALSO deeply authentic to me as the maker.
The shift has been due in large part to me moving away from making what I think other people might want, and only making designs that I truly love and feel passionate about. There’s so much goddamn noise out there, and we’re constantly being bombarded with images and media all day long- I’ve realized that as part of my process, it’s really important for me to ask myself “do you love this and want to make this? Or do you feel like you should because it’s what’s trending right now?”
Of course, there is always going to be some overlap between what I love and what’s currently blowing up your Instagram feed- but it’s getting easier to filter out the bullshit. And I’m proud of myself for that! ✨
