Start with Words:

Don’t try starting with ideas. If you try starting with an idea without a concept or a plan, you’re just going, you are going to continue to experience more imposter syndrome. Create concepts using a word map and then understand how to insert the uncommon inspiration and stop just searching where everyone else’s searching!

—Brandi Sea, Creative Director, Design Strategist, Graphic Designer
