Lately, I've been on my phone more than I'd like to admit. It got me thinking about how the repetitive actions of swiping and typing are impacting my hands and body. Ouch! It's time to readjust! It’s no secret that engaging in the same action over and over again makes it more likely that you will develop a repetitive strain injury. The good news is that this outcome is not inevitable. Learning more about your most important tool, your body, can be incredibly empowering.
Have you had any issues with copycats? I know I have! I can’t tell you how many times I have had brands and even organizations that I’ve worked closely with trying to create offerings that use language that is a little too close to what I do. I believe in collaboration over competition but it is also important to protect your creative brand in the process.
