Yesterday I listened to interviews with Oki Sato, founder of Nendo. It was really interesting to get to know a point of view of another designer. I really liked what he said about having a daily routine. He said that if you do the same things every day, go to the same coffee place, drink the same cappuccino, etc. you will then realize little detailes or surprizes of life, which can lead to ideas.
I think I’m doing something similar. I do the same things every day, get up, eat good food, do yoga, design, draw, dance, listen to music, practice guitar, talk to friends, read, write diary. But every day something is a little different and each day I’m getting better in what I do and with this repetition I’m on a journey with constant change.
Also, I liked his advice: if you want to have a spouse, don’t do 400 projects at once, maybe 100.
I really need to be open to other designers and go to events, so be a part of the community. New mission!
I will recieve the prototype of the gps case on Monday. I am so excited about it. It will be so amazing to hold it in my hands. Hope the gps will fit in it!
I looked at it for so long while designing it in 3D on my monitor, but it will be very different I think in reality when it has a defined material and size.
My client was satisfied with it, which means a lot to me.
Since I made a website for myself and my future brand I was thinking about it and I have a totally new direction I want to go in.
My new idea is to create a website, where people can share and trade anything that they made themselves. Any type of self-made thing could be traded, any kind of objects, food, or intellectual product . There would be no money related to the site. The trades would be all based on only what the website users agree between themselves. It could be used for local trading between people living nearby and international tradig also.
I like this idea so much better then having my own brand. And I would upload the things I make to share what I’ve created.
I’ve been progressing with learning to play the guitar. I can play the intro of Come as you are. It’s really easy, sounds awesome, so good choice for beginners.
Sometimes I can’t believe how amazing people I meet because of freelancing. So cool.
I’m almost finished with creating the shape of the second item. I really like playing with these angular shapes. I have to just make sure that every surface is in good place and round all the edges, and it can go to manufacturing. I’m so excited to see it in real life.
I’ve recently found a new band that I really like. I think it’s a pretty basic hippy style band, but I didn’t know their songs up to now. Edward Sharpe & Magnetic Zeros, so great music, so cool videos. Maybe I’ll try to learn some of their songs.
2017 resolutions: travel somewhere on my own, buy a ukulele and learn to play on it
First step! This is the first time that I could play a song somewhat recognizable.
