Iterate Through Potential Designs

The word "iterate" has recently developed a connotation for describing a computer program, but it is especially relevant for the design process as well. The more you iterate and experiment with different variations of your mockups, the more content ideas you will produce. By iterating, you don't attach yourself emotionally to just one design. Instead, you give your team (or clients) multiple ideas to consider. And you improve your skills as you go. 
It's ok if some of your iterations feel half-done or not quite finished, because they eventually will bring you to the "good" version. Paula Scher, the designer behind the Microsoft Windows logo, once said: "It's through mistakes that you actually can grow. You have to get bad in order to get good."

You may not like some of your iterations. But the only way to get past work that you don't approve of is to iterate more.

In addition to showcasing some incredible design work examples, also takes the time to share passion projects. For example, Joanne has some collage experiments where she integrated image and type to create dynamic compositions that resemble songs in the electronic dance genre. Sharing side projects and things you are passionate about is a cool way to show off your design skills and create something that you want to create.
