Lack Of Inspiration / Drive

New idents 2006 Atobgraphics


I'm having a huge amount of down time in design at the moment. I just cant seem to get motivation to finish off a project, ive started loads but lack of inspiration and drive has forced me to just stop.
I hope this doesn't last too much longer as strangely its getting me quite down, just seem to be wasting my time watching the clock.

My plan was to hopefully start some collabs with various people, and also to get EggHeadz active again, and had hoped to get my head around fontographer and have some fonts uploaded but as of yet im still learning the software, as basic as it maybe. its not as easy as first thought.

If anyone is still up for a collab and has some decent stock to use let me know, and we'll have a chat.

Please help me survive and buy even a little print.

Don't know if you'll be able to find them, but theres a Kiwi groups you might like: Shapeshifter (not the Lola's theme one), Baitercell & Timmy Schumacher, Recluse. I've also been listening to Tiefschwartz lately...

Big ups to a fellow Electronica lover.

Im having a similar problem. I get really excited with concepts and starting things, then I fizzle out, and then start another one.. and it repeats. I have about 5 started works that I cant see going anywhere anytime soon.

I need a vacation :)

the time will come when a burst of inspiration is waiting at the door -- just relax -- and focus on the ideas that motivated you in the start -- and go from there -- read -- look out the window -- and if you see it -- close your eyes and now imagine it --

have a look at my gallery -- if there is anything you like use it -- later days

Drive a car! There's your drive!
CardinalCDXX Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2006
Lack of drive is the worst feeling ever. Problem is I don't know how to get rid of it...I have a number of ideas if you ever feel like taking one, but I doubt it'd be your style...

Get better, rock on. Respect.

I just hope you get better by the time! Lack of inspiration affects everyone, I guess...
If you don't see the light by the end of the tunnel, just be inspired by the darkness of it! ;)

i just stared making my 1st ever font its looking ok i have all the letters done in illustrator and have just aquired fontograper4.1 yesterday, so am hopeing its not to hard to export from illustrator or photoshop to fontograper.

i can see this font never ever getting finished haha.

hey dude.

i wouldnt worry bout your lack of inspriation and all that crap, i went through a stage like that for a couple weeks. it happens and theres nothing we can do, its well annoying!

just give it some time, because the more you try and get out of it the worst it gets, you just need to step away from it all and then it will all come back to you. trust it works :)
jimro Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2006
Oh, dont let lack of inspiration get you down. Just leave the design for a while and you will get new ideas soon enough. I think the trick is not to try to force things out.

If you like drum'n'bass you should definitly check out [link] . killer collection :D

Bronski Beat -Small Town Boy <-- now thats a real classic, I love that song :)
