Designers Block? Forget About it!

Designers block is an issue that affects all of us and can be a pain to get past! So what do you do? First of all, take a deep breath and relax. Try to identify what the cause of creative block is. For me personally, I lose all creative ability when I am under a lot of stress. Once you have identified what the cause of creative block is found a solution to reduce the impact of those things on your life.

If your creative block is caused by stress like me then take a step back from your work and think about other projects. I also find that going to the gym helps me overcome my creative block, but due to certain time constraints, it’s not always possible so I get up and do jumping jacks real quick and get back to work.

The solution to designers block is not always that simple. To read more about it click here.

    When I get blocks, I usually take a step back from the project and do other things while thinking about it in the back of my mind. Also looking through other works or inspirations can help you come up with something for your own

    Thanks for the helpful link! I usually always get designers block, and I’m never able to jump right into a project. I agree with hnguye89 above, looking at other designers’ work really helps encourage me to do better and pushes me w/ healthy competition. Usually when we have a design block it’s because we aren’t looking at the big picture of how our design can affect others!
