WOW – Freelance Illustrative Designer Steve Simpson


Albert Einstein once said “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new”.

It’s from our mistakes that we find new ways of approaching problems, the real talent is recognising we are making mistakes and learning from them. I’ve always been the type of person who is constantly questioning, experimenting and tweaking my work, this can often lead to taking an idea too far and breaking it If you aways play it safe, you’ll never know how far you can push it… and that’s where all the fresh and original ideas lie waiting to be discovered.
