A few days before starting this project, I attended a talk about self care for artists and designers. The speaker did well in covering basic care techniques, but couldn’t answer any of the questions students asked. These were serious questions that everyone often asks themselves, and I felt that they needed to be addressed.
After that experience, I became extremely aware of how stressed and doubtful the people around me were. So many of my friends were pulling all-nighters, sometimes multiple in a row. I felt compelled to make this project to tell people that:
In a field like design, where the only effort we can put in is time, it’s hard to admit that we need to take a break sometimes. We get exhausted and stressed over perfecting projects and how our futures depend on our work. But it’s ok to take a break and it’s important to take care of yourself.
