Winter has passed
The past half-year has been one long and though journey in which I had to rediscover and reinvent myself on a personal level as well as professionally. Apart from having to let go of some very close people I took a clean slate and questioned myself if I would embark into a new field of expertise or stay true to my skills and thus find a new position as a designer/art director. In the solitude of my ivory tower and thanks to the help of my family, friends and a career-coach I was looking for answers and a solid plan for the future during this sabbatical. I've challenged myself to live healthier (occasionally running and working out) loosing about 10kg and learned and read a lot about coding, security, human (social) behavior and coaching-techniques.
One thing is certain: I still want… no ‘need’ to be a designer. Creating a better, more beautiful world and helping other people doing so. After weeks of reflection a new master plan is slowly taking shape. In the upcoming weeks I’ll finally buy a motorbike, will take on a new position as the digital graphic designer for Wrangler and am already looking forward pushing and challenging myself further each and every day. What more can you do or wish for as a human?
