Document and organise your projects into digital folders. It takes very little time to take pictures or scan in sketches. These can provide a useful diary of work to look back over, making it quick and easy to find images for future client proposals.
Blog and update social media, but stay sane. There’s no need to post every second of your day! Remember, people love seeing work-in-progress images almost as much as, if not more than, the finished piece.
Don’t be scared about trying out new ideas or working on creative projects that you’ve little experience in. Clients sometimes simply want your creative brain involved, which can lead to wonderfully unexpected results.
Look for opportunities to collaborate with others. Bringing in another creative can help spread the workload and breath fresh life into a project.
If you’re stuck on a project don’t stare into the abyss of the white sheet of paper. Try listening to a new piece of music, read an article on something you’ve not heard about or have a chat to a mate and then come back to the problem. Sometimes even just grabbing a quick breath of fresh air is enough to clear your head and help reset the brain.
