I was flipping through design magazines this weekend and was struck by how many of my favorite designers have a consistent style to their work…a through line that makes you think “oh I know who designed this room….”
This quote kinda summed it up for me. Most of us don’t look to the sage words of Adam Ant for inspiration, but I think he summed it up beautifully. I know there are plenty of designers who change their styles to suit the client, but I am not sure if that is where I see myself going in my career.
Mind you, I don’t want to be repetitive, but I am striving for a signature style, a consistency in my vision and scope. As I do more projects, I see my own personal preferences becoming more defined and pronounced. And I like it because that is when I believe I deliver my best work…..I think it is when any designer gives his or her best work, when they are consistent to their core vision.
So this week, I will strive for consistency and see where this journey takes me.
