Putting together your own portfolio sucks.
The moment you sit down to draw up your portfolio, it’s as though every bright idea, every cool and clever thing you’ve ever done as a creative just…evaporates. And all that stands before you is a heaping pile of 💩.
That’s the burden of being a professional
perfectionist creative. You sit down to collect your beautiful work. Head over to Google to start the search for inspira—BAMM! You’re not even present anymore, and your brain floods with anxiety, self-doubt, and hopelessness over how what lies on your hard drive is nothing like these glossy pages. And all your best, most relevant work is in progress.
