No one likes dealing with problems. They force us to take a detour away from what we really want to accomplish while we stop and untangle them. But here’s the thing about problems – they’re the genesis for good ideas. They provide the opening for solutions, which in turn give you a leg up on your career. The stronger your fundamentals and core competencies are, the better position you put yourself in when you make your moves, whether it’s a play for new business or showing how your designs provide value far beyond the aesthetic layer.

Admittedly, this is a lofty, nuanced question. And it insinuates that something is broken. Nothing is broken here, but there is always room for improvement. Like, is design too indulgent for its own good? Or maybe designers have trouble conveying their importance to clients? Or there is a lack of diversity within the industry? We gave our subjects free rein to go in whatever direction they deemed to be the most troubling, so you’ll see all of these topics and more covered in the following responses. The feedback provides a chance for self-reflection, to see if you’re guilty of any of them, while also serving as an ongoing checklist to make sure you’re doing everything you can to be at your best.

Designers as entrepreneurs
Being a designer is a bit like being an entrepreneur. We share a drive to question the solutions around us and look for opportunities to innovate. As designers we have the advantage of being able to take a vision, define and refine it, and then make it a production reality. We thrive on taking on the design challenges.

But taking the leap into the realm of entrepreneurship is a challenge we can find ourselves unprepared for. Being an entrepreneur means taking on a new level of risk; it means being willing to invest all your energy and your money into a project with a very small chance of succeeding. A belief that your vision is worth risking it all is what drives successful entrepreneurs.

Steve Jobs and others serve as inspiration to designers every day. But what does it take to start the journey to become the next big thing? Perhaps this insight from a fellow creative practitioner will help shed some light and set you down the path.
