Find inspiration and challenge yourself to the point of stretching your abilities to their limit, and possibly even expanding your reach to new lengths. Design what makes you happy and always strive to find what makes you different by staying true to yourself and not just for the sake of saying you’re different.

Here’s an excellent video you should watch. http://vimeo.com/70884904

Love what you do and never work a day in your life!

Fact is, with my environmental biology degree I could be making twice what I make now from film scoring. But I’d probably hate my life; money is nice, but as long as it’s enough to feed me and mine (and buy the occasional new sample library) I’m more than content.

This is so true! Clients confuse popular trends with mass deludge! They often want a website or a plugin looking more than 90% like another popular website or plugin. They think that if that project had such a massive success, then his project will be awesome and have success. Then how can I be original? How can I add my signature as a web designer on your website if it looks like another website? Do you know why I call myself “a webdesigner” and not “a xerox”? Better know the difference before asking me to work for you. I often get the illusion that I have freehand on a project, and the client tells me “Hey, I need a colored shape! You can choose what’s best for me!” and I make a red square. Then he says “Hmm… You know what? I’ve seen a good looking black triangle on a website. Make it look exactly as it is there! I’m sure it’s better, if it works for them, it will work for me!”. Then why do you contact me? Copy that website’s triangle if you want, but don’t ask me to do this for you. I just don’t like this! I hate it!

For those without a sense of humor: I don’t draw rectangles for my clients in my spare time! :D

Don’t forget the computer upgrades. :) I was making way more than twice what I am now when I was in software development. My current career ambitions are the same as yours!
