Myths of Creativity
Created by Satori Notebook Co.
To surpass others is fucking tough, if you only do as you are told you don’t have it in you to succeed. Fuck. When you design, you have to draw on your own fucking life experiences. If it’s not something you would want to read/look at/use then why fucking bother? Respect your fucking craft. Dedicate yourself to lifelong fucking learning. The details are not the details. They make the fucking design.

Stop clicking your mouse, get messy, go back to the basics and make something fucking original.
