"Everything is equally hard, but not
everything is equally meaningful.
Spend the effort on meaningful things."
~ Phil Libin

It is truly a satisfying feeling to successfully bring a concept to fruition. As J.K. Rowling said, "the discipline involved in finishing a piece of creative work is something on which you can truly pride yourself."

Creative Mindset

My understanding of creativity shifted when I learned about user experience and interaction design. Now, everything I create is centered around serving a need - in other words, real world problems.
