Any excuse to get away from the computer screen is welcome. Stefan Sagmeister, Graphic Designer
Every seven years, acclaimed Graphic Designer Stefan Sagmeister closes down his New York City-based design studio for an entire year to creatively explore and experiment, without the limits or demands of everyday working life.
Not quite as epic as Sagmeister, I’ve just spent the past 6 months doing the same.
For half a year:
– I closed my coaching practice.
– I informed friends that I wasn’t socialising, even for coffee.
– I unplugged from social media and the news.
– I let my mind freewheel.
Because like Sagmeister, I’ve experienced the value of taking time off for creative exploration.
