  • // TRUTH //  By Beck Storer

    For those that know me this may come as a huge surprise - but I was extremely shy when I was a young Beck -  fresh out of uni and starting my career in design.

     

    I struggled to speak up, to share my ideas. A nervous outrageous red rash would appear on my neck when I presented and my childhood lisp would come back (stumbling on those god damn S’s!) - I got so terribly nervous in meetings!  Clients were like these big scary monsters. And I so wanted to work at one of those big award winning studios, I desperately wanted to be just like them. The studios I worked for, including those award winning ones -  I saw them as these floating Zen like gurus and I just assumed I knew nothing.

     

    Nothing at all.

     

    I just followed... never thinking I could

    be a leader…

     

    It took me a very, very long time to finally realise that one of the most important things about being a creative, is being true to yourself and not trying to be someone that you’re not.

     

    Truth is transparent. It’s no bullshit.
    It’s what you see
     - is what you get. It’s raw and honest.

     

    Now with clients, when my little stutter appears, we have a few laughs while I do it and I present with confidence, even if it is with a touch of shakespearean theatre. I truly don’t give a frack about what other so called “peers" think of me…( it’s a precious and funny thing our design industry…to the recent grads out there you're about to see this). And when I lecture,
    I proudly wear my heart on my sleeve, make a fool
    of myself and deliver my classes with a lot of guts
    and honesty.

     

    Right now, this very minute, I can truthfully say I have never felt prouder or more confident about who I am, and about what I want to do in this wonderful world
    of creativity.

     

    All your unique personality traits should be embraced and not hidden away. These form a part of your story - they are your own little brand of truth. And when you finally find your truth, embrace it and proudly share it with the world, then there is nothing stopping you.

    Go! For! It!

    Do you know what your truth is -
    and do you actually use it?
