Let’s do a giveaway

LCS 22: a giveaway, making a bad logo, food photography with a purpose and more.

Hello friends, it’s time for another edition of Learn Create Share, a weekly newsletter with inspiration to learn, create and share. In this edition I’m doing the final action on my list by sharing not just what I’ve learned this week, but a giveaway too!

Creative Challenge: Make a bad logo!

Logo design is a skill I really respect. Unfortunately I don’t really think I’m blessed in this area. Fortunately, that makes me a great person to make a bad logo (and if you are a bad drawer, you can too!)

You can either pick an established brand or your own brand, proud a logo that’s bad either because of the execution or concept.

Post your ideas in the Learn Create Share discord.

No, this isn’t part of a Godzilla film plot...yet, it’s a real discovery which may have great benefits for interstellar travel.

No artist is pleased

“No artist is pleased.”

“But then there is no satisfaction?” Agnes asked.

“No satisfaction whatever at any time,” Graham cried out passionately. “There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.”

This is why I focus on the process rather than product. Even when the product is excellent, I still feel disappointed. Instead, it’s all about making something new and creating something new. Even if it’s not as good.
