Has Your Design Career Stagnated?Aug 18, 2022
Do you wish you could do more business or earn more money? If you’re spinning your wheels but getting nowhere, consider: could you be getting in your own way? Here’s five ordinary habits that can stall a design career, and the techniques to turn them around.
Words by Erin, Digital Design Media Manager
1. You design the same design over and over
When we stumble on a successful approach to well, anything, it’s natural to want to repeat it. Maybe there was a design style that sold really well for you last season and you’ve reinvented it few times since. You have the formula down and now it’s fast to produce. You’re moving at a rapid rate but your work is starting to feel too familiar. “There’s a lot of competition for textile sales out there and if you are not providing enough variety then your designs are not appearing new” says creative director, Rebecca. “Customers always want the ‘newest and best,’ even though sometimes they’ll end up buying something that’s not so new as it’s a safe commercial bet for them, but they want to know that they’ve had that choice,” she continues.
2. You forget about fashion
3. You avoid watching and reading tutorials
4. You resist new technology
5. You tell yourself your work isn’t good enough
