The toughest thing about creative work is being able to consistently pump out high quality work without it getting stale, feeling bored, or getting burned out. The reason I think I’ve seen so many once-great designers stagnate is burnout. Designers get used up and spit out like they’re disposable. I’ve personally tried to steer clear of being put in situations where I needed to constantly pump out creative work. As much as I love it, you have to pace yourself and the past few months have already burned me out pretty bad. I didn’t get into this business to be someone’s tool. I got into this business because I want to make something beautiful.
