We Need More Shitty Work

Linked on February 23, 2017

Love this post from Femke van Schoonhoven. I’m one of many that finds themselves paralyzed by the need for perfection in my work. It’s something I’m trying to move beyond (especially with drawing and illustration), but damn is it hard. Posts like this are a good reminder to embrace my insecurities, get over them, and get the shitty stuff out of the way so that the good stuff can finally make an appearance.

Thanks, Femke.

Email Design Podcast #50: Becs Rivett-Kemm

Published on February 21, 2017

I’ve been lax in posting recent Email Design Podcast episodes, but I really enjoyed our latest episode so I had to share it. Kevin and I sat down with email designer Becs Rivett-Kemm and talked about a host of things, my favorite of which was our discussion on freelancing and consulting.

I know a lot of email designers do freelance work, but relatively few talk about the ins-and-outs of the business. Becs was gracious enough to share some insights into how she works and balances freelancing with a full-time job and I think it’s something everyone should listen to.
