The Gap


This week’s letterpress design was inspired by this amazing video. The calming, supportive, inspiring words of Ira Glass (Host & Executive Producer of This American Life) reach out to anyone in doubt. The design to the right is composed of a (slightly paraphrased) version of his speech, specifically:

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners. I wish someone had told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good… But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you…We all go through this… you gotta know that it’s normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. It’s only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions.”
