coffee + cre8tive [mar 28 06]

UK Designer Jenny Wilkinson opened the doors of her design studio in 2003 and is best known for her wallpaper by numbers series. Interactive wallpaper leaving you responsible for ‘filling in the blanks’.

This wallpaper inspired me today because I think that in many ways, most of our careers are like this. I mean, none of us can say we are the ‘first’ artist or the ‘first’ blogger or writer or zookeeper. We are but a speck on the map. We were provided with an outline from those that lived before us or even who walk next to us now, and with that, it is up to us to fill in all the colors and create a look that is as unique as our fingerprint. Just like this wallpaper. Life is a lot like this, fill in the blanks and create your own special masterpiece.

What do you think?
