New Year’s Resolutions

The hard part’s not making the resolution it’s sticking to it… For that reason we wanted to see what everyone’s New Year’s Resolutions were for 2010 so we posted a contest on Facebook gave everyone a week and a half to get their submissions in and Pete and I picked a winner.

And the $50 Visa gift card goes to…

Yancie Davis from Santa Clara, CA!! Yancie is a 25 year old freelance designer who’s been designing since he was 12. He’s currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Graphic Design at the Academy of Art. You can view some of his recent work here http://www.flickr.com/photos/yankydoodledesign

Yancie’s resolution can be read below:

My New Years resolution for this year is to fully immerse myself in all things design. I get so wrapped up in fulfilling my responsibilities at work and at home, and I feel I’ve used it in the past as an excuse. But this year, I’m going all in. I’m going to set up an artspace at home where I can have space to be a more productive artist; I’m going to try to attend at least one major graphic design conference; I’m going to invest in the tools needed to be a better graphic designer (better computer, a high quality camera, pencils and paints, etc.). My goal is establish myself in my local design community by this time next year. I’ll work on national establishment in 2011.

We wish you the best of luck in 2010 and hope you accomplish all you set out to do!

We also want to thank everyone for participating it was so exciting and inspiring to read your resolutions and we hope everyone can follow through with them! Have a great 2010 everyone!
