Make Something Cool Every Day
If you are a beginner photographer or designer looking for an easy way to success, then all you need to do is one project. That’s it! Only this one little “365 project”. 1 hour a day, for the rest of the year doing something creative, and nothing more! Everyone can sacrifice 1 hour a day, right?
Of course, it’s not as easy as it sounds – those who’ve tried it know. So, before you start, you may need some inspiration, and I can’t think of a better 365 project example than Brock Davis’ “Make Something Cool Every Day”.
Brock Davis is a Minneapolis-based artist and musician who works on primarily self-initiated projects in a variety of mediums. He currently serves as creative director at Carmichael Lynch where his work has won such accolades as the prestigious Cannes Lion award for creative excellence.
Brock started his 365 project back in 2009 when he decided to make one piece of creative work every day for 365 consecutive days in 2009, from January 1st to December 31st. Here are our 40 best picks taken from his already finished project.
