Personal Identity

1 Oct

I have been struggling with creating a self-identity for my design work for a while now. I kept putting it off because I didn’t think I needed it yet. I’m still a student and I’m not yet looking for a design job; but then I started getting some freelance work from my mom’s company and then that led to a few more things. Now I sort of do a little work here and there and I need something for people to remember me by. The problem now is Designer’s Block.

I can develop identities for other people until the cows come home but when it comes to defining myself I have trouble. I suppose it comes from not feeling like I have a strong self-identity in life and that just carries over to design. I am getting closer though. I created The Design Lush to try to bring everything together. Now I just need a visual identity to go with it. Has anyone else had trouble defining their style or creating a self-identity?
