Last week I was busy trying to put together a new design website design for an important client at work. As always, we were on a very tight deadline and it had to be completed the end of the next day. I’d left work early so I could concentrate on the design without being distracted by the inevitable. “Can you just make this quick change to…”, “Can you take a look at this…” and “This won’t take long, but could you…” things that take up most of my day. I got home, made myself a cup of tea, sat down and… nothing. Designer’s block hit me with a vengence.
No matter what I did, I couldn’t think of anything.
The next day, I came across an article on Spoonfed Design with tips on how to avoid designer’s block. At least next time I suffer from the block, I can try and find a way around it.
In the end, I managed to put together a design I’m quite proud of – and hopefully it’ll see the light of day sometime over the next month or two.
