They fuel your creativity
Whatever it is that you feel is holding you back, a passion project is the shovel to dig you out.
They make you remember why you love your work
I have found that even now, as much as I love to design, I can come to a point where I don’t love my work as much.
One cool thing about the passion project is that you are your own target market.
They create a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment
Like setting a running goal or a healthy habit, pursuing passion projects boosts your creative stamina and helps you push yourself to go further.
They give you a chance to branch out
Whatever that limb might be, passion projects beg for you to go out on it and try something new or get back to doing something you love but haven’t made the time to work on.
They allow for more experimentation and fun
You can experiment with new techniques in software, you can experiment with new physical tools you’ve never used or fools you’ve used but in a new way, you can experiment with literally anything.
They help you curate your work
Curating is collecting the work you want to present to the world.
Doing passion projects and sharing them is key to us not only doing our best work, but doing our best work for ourselves, then for clients who want to pay us to do what we love.
They beg to be shared
Passion projects are the easiest way to show people who you are and what you can do.
You will never lack for a sense of fulfillment in your work as long as you have your own passion projects to pursue.
Not only is it okay to do something just for yourself, but it’s beneficial to your creativity.
