#100DaysofFeelings: On Day 12, I feel called upon.

Oh Photoshop...

I have spent the entire day staring at my screen and only slightly adjusting designs on Photoshop. There's just something about the program that draws me in and doesn't let go. It also wakes the perfectionist in me big time.

I was supposed to be done with all the mini-guides for the Secret Library, but I am only done with the first one. But here's the thing...

How do you decide what's more important: value or packaging? 

I used to believe value is always more important, but then the packaging attracts people, so the value comes second in the order of things. Which means we should all put more effort into packaging our offerings. 

I have done both - thrown together a quick thing, zero design and spent too much time on how it looks but not sure how useful it is.

And why is it that one always come at the expense of the other?

Anywho, I have been buying a lot of designs on Creative Market and Design Cuts as well, and I haven't used most of them, but I am trying to stay open to this insatiable desire to create more visual things. 

Wrong or right, I will continue to spend 10+ hours on Photoshop and buying textures I'll never use because there's just something there.

Have you ever just felt like there was something calling you?

That's how I feel today: Called upon...
