What advice would you give to someone who wants to do what you do?
Ensure your work is essential. I think designers and creatives should never minimize the impact of their work. Even more so, generalists and folks stringing things together or playing background roles should know their work matters. I think we're often conditioned to really celebrate the vocal or visible roles people play in our places of work, industries, and communities. I think this sometimes convinces folks that certain roles are more important or valuable than other roles people play. I don't believe that. I think the folks who make the paper that a design graces, is just as important and as valuable as the designer.
