015: Facing Imposter Syndrome

Imposter syndrome, that feeling that you’re not good enough for what you’re doing, affects many creatives and it can be hard to overcome. In this episode we chat about how it affects us, and when and where it strikes most often. We also talk about social media’s role in this, and how we shouldn’t compare ourselves to others. We’ll give you some strategies for coping if this is something you’re struggling with too, and hopefully this episode will help you feel like you’re not alone in feeling a bit of self doubt every now and then.

"We shouldn’t be comparing ourselves to other people, because there’s enough room for all of us as designers on this planet with our different design styles"
