Pressure = Inspiration?
~ 18 January 2007 ~
I’ve always had my own methods of dealing with [inspiration] and one of them is pressure. I only start work when I really cannot avoid it anymore. And it’s not inspiration, it’s sweat — perspiration…. I don’t get turned on by nothing. I get turned on by problems. For clients. The only reason I know that people go for walks, I find, or people do other stuff, is not for inspiration — it’s to avoid the issue.
These thoughts, as well as those from 39 other designers, can be found in Inspirability: 40 Top Designers Speak Out About What Inspires. My copy arrived yesterday, and “highly recommended” fits the bill. (Anything with a fuzzy green cover ought to be good, right?)
