What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail at it?

This question I overheard today really made me think about what I should focus on in my life and what my end goal is. My answer was ‘something creative’. I’ve always felt I don’t have enough originality and individuality to pursue a career in design, that I don’t have the ‘eye’ for it. Looking at other people’s work I’m so impressed and think to myself how did they think of that!? Once I started studying graphic design at Coventry Uni I was thrown into being creative, trying out different techniques and outputs. In the first term we looked at the history of typography and used letter presses, tried out mono-printing and dry-point printmaking, were given a range of ‘mini’ briefs from designing a map for a local art gallery to improving an existing advertisement and so much more. This has encouraged me to continue with my creative development as there is so much variety in design and that with time and determination I may just be able to become ‘someone creative’.
