The Gospel of Frank Chimero
[ source ]
Yesterday my friend Traceyjay sent me a link which could quite possibly change my life. It was a post about designer Frank Chimero which contained a link to some of the best advice I’ve ever read. If you are a creative type, want to be a creative type, if you’re a teacher, a student, or a person in general you should read this. And if I can put 50% of it into practice, I have hope of becoming successful.
This one page from Frank Chimero’s is full of brilliantness. And though I’d love to quote all of it, I’ll stick to three little bits.
- “If you say “retro” too much you will get hives and maybe die.”
- “If you meet a person who cares about the same obscure things you do, hold on to them for dear life.”
- “Success is generating an emotion. Failure is a million different things.”
I’m all inspired to go make something, to do something worthwhile. First, go read it, then you go make something.
