On January 1, 2013, I started a daily design blog. I challenged myself to create something every day for 365 days. Random ideas, questions, design problems, etc. that I encountered throughout the day, were elaborated on. I had one rule: something must be posted by midnight.
January was definitely the hardest month because it took some time to get the ball rolling. Early on, I felt self-conscious about sharing the work, but now as I look back, I appreciate each piece for what it is. With each day I learned to work faster and to view the days work as an experiment, rather than worrying about creating a final piece. I never became totally comfortable putting things out there that I wasn’t satisfied with, but that was part of the process, and it propelled me to work harder the next day.
