Welcome 2023 and the Pantone color of the year is Viva Magenta! As a graphic and web designer I have lived by the color bible that is the Pantone color books. If you do not know what they are, look it up, they help a lot in different media. This year’s color make me happy as it is one of my very favorite colors and really sets the positive and exciting tone for the year.
Along with being a web nerd I am also a tech geek and have my eye on the new Motorola Edge 30 Fusion which has collaborated with Pantone for a color of the year mobile device.
As we enter this new year, I wanted to remind myself (and anyone who indulges in my shenanigans here) to focus on what you can control. Make goals – professional, personal, recreational, etc. – that are realistic but elevate your life somehow, and make a plan. It is easy to make new years resolutions or wishes, but to turn them into an attainable goal requires a road map, a plan, a pathway. And it is okay to not know right at the top of the calendar year what those goals are. These timelines, after all, are social constructs, but they serve as a reminder to recollect and regroup, regain perspective, and clear your head.
To be honest, I do not know what my goals are yet. I have been mulling over some form of continuing education. Developing my skills to a higher level of ability with video editing and content creation. There is always room to grow with graphic design as technology advances and programs update. I would also like to work on personal health development and perhaps return to light jogging on a regular basis. What are your goals?
