The Journey, not the Destination

We're creative people not because it's easy... but because it's hard.

James White, the 1-man wrecking crew behind the Signalnoise Studio, takes you through some of the more turbulent and confusing times in his career as a designer.

For all the successes, we each have numerous low points which can affect output, perception, stability and mood.

This isn't a celebration of failure, but more of a close look into the life of a designer as he searches for his creative voice in pursuit of doing the work he truly loves.

James will share his 10-year journey as a young designer, the frustrations of finding a creative voice, the pitfalls of "going viral" and how every experience makes us a little stronger... and we can scream a little louder.
