Semi-hiatus (Ramblings and contact information below)
In a few hours, I’ll be leaving my laptop and luggage at my friend’s place, in preparation for my 1-month trip around Europe, starting from the day after tomorrow.
I’ll take my camera with me (obviously), but I won’t be able to do any designing during the entire August, and that genuinely depresses me (almost enough for me to reconsider not going on the trip at all, as crazy as it sounds).
Not that I’ve designed an awful lot lately anyway. To be honest, I’m kind of disappointed in myself for not leaving more time for personal work throughout my entire exchange experience. All the emails and travelling has been draining my energy away, and while I still think about design almost every single waking second, I don’t feel like much of a designer right now…
There is a slight upside to this. I’ve been taking a lot more photos while I’m in Europe (for obvious reasons). I certainly don’t consider myself a “serious photographer”. As you can see from my recent posts, I’m finding different ways to inject my love for geometry and simplicity into my pictures, and, maybe even develop a taste for new visual textures. Photography is just another way for me to channel my design sensibilities; I’m hoping I can train my eye and not get rusty, without actually having to “do design” for the coming month. It’s the best I can do right now given my circumstances.
I’d type more, but I have some more last-minute frantic packing to do.
