I just finished reading Stefan Sagmeister’s book titled “Things I have learned in my life thus far” and found this beautiful clip today on Vimeo that expresses what I really feel the essence of this book is about. Experiences.
Taking time out of your life for experiential moments (a little wanderlust) as a designer is one of the best things you can do to continue to nurture your creativity. Many of the best projects I have ever worked on have happened just after a period where I’ve had a complete break from the internet world. Steffan Sagmeister took an entire year to do it, but I believe it can be done anytime you set your mind to it, even if it’s just for a few hours a day.
