8 Things Every Creative Should Know

Design*Sponge – 8 Things Every Creative Should Know – Adam J. Kurtz

There are plenty of tips and anecdotes and case studies and advice for “Creatives,” and a lot of it is very good stuff, but sometimes it feels like too much to digest. This month I thought I would focus on some base elements. Eight simple, maybe obvious things that are worth remembering. If you can look past the clickbait headline – #5 Made Me Laugh ‘Til I Cried! – one or all of these might be an important reminder for right now.

This month actually marks my one-year anniversary of writing monthly guides for Design*Sponge, and I am just so happy to be a part of this family. I can sentimentalize anything (and am literally writing this on my birthday) so bear with me as I use some of the items on this list to reflect on past guides that dig deeper in a few similar directions. –Adam J.
