What advice would you give to aspiring designers looking to build a successful creative business?

The thing that sits with me most today is to always strive to improve yourself. There’s a concept in Japan called kaizen, which means ‘continuous improvement.’ Sometimes improvements are small, but if you’re constantly challenging yourself, many small changes become monumental transformations over time. It’s in our nature to grow and learn, and it’s always satisfying to look back and see how far you’ve come. Plus, you become more marketable and in demand as you increase your skills and abilities.
