I am a graphic and digital designer based in Brighton. I try and be open minded when it comes to all things creative and love to be influenced and pulled in to new and unexpected directions. I have been working in the publishing industry for ten years and love what I do. I have recently migrated from print to digital and am enjoying the new and ever changing horizons.

Wealth and power have been our conventional measures of success. What definition will better sustain us now and how can we move into it?
Great question Anita! In western society we seem to be stuck on an hedonic treadmill. We are designed to want more and more and are constantly comparing ourselves to others. We crave the materialistic, but it's never enough to satisfy us. Isn't it funny that people would rather earn $40,000 a year in an area where their neighbors earn $20,000, than earn $60,000 in an area where their neighbors earn a $80,000. We have to go back to basics if things are to change and remember what's really important (i.e friends, family). We also need to be able to recognise when enough is enough. It's good to set yourself personal targets and goals on things that are not necessarily money related (i.e running a marathon, starting a new hobby etc). I believe that this kind of achievement can really bring out the best in people. All of us can set an example!
