Every time I happen to glance over at my husband’s nightstand, I deliberately change course and walk over to it. Little Bee, a novel by Chris Cleave, is so enticing in its cover design that I can’t ignore it, even if I tried.
This morning I finally turned to the book over to see who designed it. It’s Roberto de Vicq de Cumptich, a New York-based graphic designer and illustrator whose portfolio is blowing my mind.
You know, when I first set out to become a graphic designer, I imagined my career would go in this direction. I certainly had the motivation and I even thought I had the potential. Yet now I feel so far off course that this no longer feels in my reach—or even in my realm.
And I can’t help but ask myself… do I still want it to be?
