What Makes A Successful Creative?
+ Passion. Curiosity. These are characteristics of a successful creative person. It's not just about knowing words or about kerning. Those things are important. But you need to be into your career with a passion. It's not just about 9-5, going in and doing the job. It's about seeing things out outside of your billable hours. It's about looking at other aspects of life and seeing them in a creative way. It's watching movies, reading books, looking at art, exploring technology. Engaging in relationships, people watching, and looking at nature. You need to be curious about the world around you. You need to be passionate about every aspect of the business, not just the one particular part you have in your title.
