Collaboration is the new Competition
This piece I created through a collaboration with a new lettering friend on Instagram: Varnika. She approached me after I put out a call for collaborations, and we worked out an idea to letter an empowering quote for women. She came up with the quote and quick sketch, and I used her inspiration to create a few more sketches and sent them back to her. She and I bounced back and forth like this and decided to each come up with our own designs separately. Collaborations don’t have to be something you do with someone like a group project, but can also be ways to get inspired through someone else to create something better than what you would have created all by yourself.
