This past weekend, I began to think about my ‘title’ – more specifically what it is that I do. What I began to realize is that I cannot solely define myself by what I am doing currently, but rather where my creativity is capable of taking me.
There are no limits to creativity
Some people might say it is a burden to have a mind that is constantly in motion. Believe me when I say it has not always been to my benefit. As I have begun to surrender my present consciousness to the universe, my mind has become free to create and be positively inspired by my surroundings. I enter a new space and see opportunity. Brainstorming with my clients tend to be the most beneficial contributions to the projects I scheme. For example, I see an old trumpet and I think. “How cool would that be with a succulent garden in the bell at a music based establishment? Perhaps a trendy jazz club?” My latest creation – I see shipping pallets and chicken wire and think, “there are a world of possible planters I could create with these simple materials.” Creativity travels indoors where an idea of a speakeasy inspired bar becomes an opportunity to up-cycle or salvage local materials. I think to myself, “What barn equipment could I use to turn into light fixtures? furniture? functional art work?” From there, the wheels turn over and over again. Creativity is limitless.
So what is it that I do? How would I personally define my freelance design initiatives? Creative Designer comes to mind. Maybe Creative Designer & Consultant? I am open to suggestions and would appreciate the input…
