There is always a sense of fear when you reveal a part of yourself. You may be afraid of rejection, criticism, or even indifference. However there is also a sense of beauty when you put yourself in a place of vulnerability. It shows who you really are inside and allows you to share your truth.
I approach design in the same fashion. I strip myself of preconceived ideas and allow honesty to guide the process. The journey may be full of uncertainty and expectations, but there is nothing more exciting than the unveiling of a finished project and its subsequent reception.
