Working on new designs

Been working on some new stag & doe ticket designs today, and it’s such a different process from what I’m used to. Typically I work with the couple and they tend to already have an idea of what they’re looking for. To build up my portfolio and really freshen things up, I’m trying to create some clean and simple designs, but I’m actually finding it somewhat challenging to work without specific guidelines. It’s funny, because I feel like my creativity should come from an unrestricted place, but I think having guidelines gives me more focus. I have so many ideas right now that I keep bouncing between them all without fully completing each one. Might be time to turn off the computer for the night and get some rest.
