wise words {5} being wrong

living a creative life

i will be the first to admit, i hate being wrong. but it was brought to my attention that nothing great comes out that way the first time. thats why we have iterative processes for design, and most creative projects. you need to get the kinks worked out but you can't do that until you've got something down on paper, or mocked up. i do have to remind my self of this sometimes that when some thing is wrong its not bad, its just part of the process.

even as i'm now looking at the hand lettering i did for this quote i'm thinking how i might want to revise it later, its not bad, but its just a draft.

so moral of the story don't be afraid of decisions or ideas because they might be 'wrong' embrace and learn from from things that aren't quite right.
