New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I've made two attempts in the past to gain a degree in typo/graphic design at LCC but only managed two weeks first time round and then two of the three years the second time of trying. I have a hot/cold relationship with type in terms of personal endeavours but consistent admiration for the discipline.
So hats of to those of you who are seasoned veterans, and looking at the forums there are many. Mainly i am asking for a little insite into individual and personal working strategies, motivational aids or any little things that go on inside your head which help keep things consistent.
The creative mind I find works when it wants to, often flashes of inspiration keep me occupied into the small hours when there is little to act as a distraction. When this subsides, I reach the end of a specific idea or things don't work out, finding the track again is a difficulty. There is no formula of course and i know to a large extent dedication is inherant but any elaboration would be interesting.
