It’s been a minute

After months of umming and ahhing about how to move forward with this site, I finally realised that traditional blogging really isn’t my passion. I love writing my weekly newsletter because it’s something I can bust out in a few hours and doesn’t have to be a huge, overly thought-out thing. A blog, on the other hand, feels like way more pressure.

A lot of the content I have been posting in this space has found other lives. For example, Broads Down Under has found its way to Instagram and it feels good there. The Resource Recaps started to take up a lot of time and were too repetitive for my liking. The rest was mainly for the purpose of breaking those two things up, apart from the occasional long-form personal piece, such as the G-Lord Found Berlin Bound series.

As you might have noticed, I completely redesigned this website as a conscious effort to shift the focus from being a “blog” to more of an online resource. I’ve always been more interested in sharing quality over quantity, so moving forward I’m going to focus on exactly that. I will still be posting here, just a lot less frequently than I used to.

Writing will continue to be an important skill that I chose to practice, but I struggle when I feel it taking over design. I’m very conscious of becoming someone who just talks about design but never creates any new work, which is something I really don’t want to be known for. First and foremost I want to be a designer and art director, so I need to prioritise that a little more than I have been.

For consistent updates and resources, you can still find me in your inbox weekly. Most importantly, thanks for reading and hanging in this far :)
