Design piece: You can’t earn grace.
March 25, 2010 § 2 Comments
Alrights, so I’ve finally decided to get back into the groove of designing regularly. Too many things have distracted me of late.
Finally purchased my own domain (after procrastinating for so long, yes), for real this time and not just talked about it. For now it’ll probably just be a place for me to put up my current portfolio to get more freelance work. More details on that when I get it up and running proper.
If anyone is interested/needs design work/want to do collaborations I’m available for hire.
(Except for the bit on collaborations.)
Do support my cause and contribute to the Send-Liz-To-Design-School fund by hiring me or linking me up with people who might want to.
For the yet to be informed, I have decided to pursue design as a career (much to the chagrin of most obviously, my mother), and am looking into doing some foundation courses leading up to a Masters’ program in Communication/Graphic Design once I’m done with this degree. It will not be an easy journey, I know. I have no art/design background, I know. What makes me think postgraduate design school will accept a student with no background such as myself, I know. A designer’s life isn’t a walk in the park or the best paying job, I know.
But being away from home in the heart of art and culture, and being exposed to a society so vastly different from what I’ve been brought up to believe is normal, has convinced me to stop postponing my dreams and not be afraid to step out beyond the safety of my limited horizon.
So keep me in your prayers. And if any time I ever feel like giving up, give me a slap on my back and remind me to stick to it.
After all, dreams wouldn’t be called dreams if they were always easily attainable.
Have a good day my Singaporean friends… It’s bed time here in Lugano.
