    Hi Sacha!

    Thanks for reading the post, and for providing the platform that you do for designers (I've been flattered by a feature on Sidebar before).

    There's a a lot of debate around the idea of passion. I think a lot of designers (and developers) are probably sweating it building things that they aren't super passionate about because their passionate about some other aspect of the work (this is often the nature of agency work). For Matthew and I, who prioritize balance and freedom in our lifestyles, the idea of designing and developing something to our standards is passion enough.

    For the designer or developer working at an agency or startup whose vision maybe isn't super inspiring (and there's a lot of them), a side project that pays the rent can be the thing that gives them the freedom to pursue what they're really passionate about. It's working for me.

    Anyway, thanks for taking the time to respond.

    Hey guys: This is the process that I've followed to launch my little side projects (that I work on full-time now). Thought it might be helpful to those of you are working on side gigs. Cheers,

    Oh my god what the hell. GOODBYE CONTRAST. Don't do this. (It feels good but that isn't the point)

    Hoping this isn't so out of scope as to get me flamed.

    Na. Being progressive has long been linked to being aware of yourself as a historical subject.

    You could have provided this feedback with the same level of directness but with class.
