I've been a designer for over 18 years working in media for news and film marketing. I've worked with local businesses in Philadelphia and for fun clients like Personality Hacker helping each create a digital presence. One of the focuses of DOPEamine is to help creatives to thrive on their own, some dealing with mental health challenges, and unlock their full potential. Much of that is a process of undoing and unlearning what we've been taught growing up in an industrialized school system surrounded by social pressure. To do things our own way takes bravery and to lift the mask of taste takes courage and transcend the desire for perfectionism is pure wisdom.
