Creative Confidence

Being a Confident Designer

Creativity requires confidence. As designers, we should be able to make bold statements and follow the most daring visions. In this issue we will explore deeper the topic of the creative confidence, and how we can build it up when getting started on a project or in the industry. This is also the last Phase Magazine issue of 2018. And so we wanted to use that opportunity to wish you all Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! We'll be back shortly in 2019 with Issue #12 coming up.
