Rejected Design

May 29, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 159

Clearly you have been rejected before, but the fear never leaves you. Why? The answer is Emotion. Often people can't control their personal emotion or how they feel towards a particular event. Pessimist in nature and demoralized after being rejected as all the time invested on the single project just vanish in thin air.

At that moment, the feeling of giving up sets in. As humans, we just can't stomach the fact that what's ours is ours, what's not ours we have to let it go, and that's my personal motto. It's the reality. The funny thing is, when we see others being rejected, we give them advice like a professional but often don't take our own advice. The reason why I am writing this is because we need to be aware that every single second, somewhere in this world someone just got rejected, even for the most unfair reason for instance biasness or worst, race. Sometimes, meritocracy just don't happen when you need it.

This is actually a blessing in disguise. As we often hear this cliche statement "getting rejected makes us stronger", it is true to some extend but only if you think so. The only people who get stronger over rejection are people with high level of self motivation. They have the drive because they are ambitious and they need to reach their goal/dream. Hence it is one way to overcome rejection, have a goal and stick to it. If you design for the sake of salary, it shows that you don't enjoy what you do. If you don't enjoy what you do, when you get rejected, it only encourage you to be more unhappy with the already deteriorating state you are in.

We need to know why we are rejected, might be due to lack of workmanship. Maybe the workmanship is excellent but the work does not meet the client's criteria.There is always an answer, or solution to everything. The worst thing you can do is to discard the rejected idea. It may be good to other client hence you never know when you need it. Just keep it to date even if it was rejected 3 years ago. At the end of the day, it's still your idea.

Keep it in your portfolio. All these rejected projects shows your capabilities and skills in the industry. If it is not good enough to be placed in your personal portfolio, well maybe you get the picture on why it was rejected in the first place. Improving your work is also a form of self-improvement so, keep the spirit high and do not get demoralized over rejection. Because you will be rejected again.
