‘‘Recognize your strengths. Be aware of what’s going on around the design world. Get connected with other designers around the world. Be discerning enough to filter out what's good and what's not. Be original and create differently from what the good ones are doing with something just as brilliant. Do not compromise on high quality. Stop saying things that are politically correct (it's boring) just stay truthful to your beliefs. Make sure you stay resilient, focused and do not give up.’’
