here are common struggles that creative professionals encounter across industries. Managing projects within a given timeline is one of those challenges. Jaworowski has a reputation to protect and is very focused on never compromising quality for timeline. As he explains it, “every time I receive an inquiry about a new project, I ask myself if there’s any way to make it very nice in the stated time table. If the answer is negative, I don’t take it. Usually I try not to run more than two projects at once, but sometimes when some old ones are still in the workshop, the situation gets more complicated. [In such cases] I set a priority for the projects. The only tip I can give: ‘ less is more’.”
When timeline pressures arise (and they always do), you just need to run with it. Jaworowski suggests that you can turn such challenges into “time motivation.” He recalls one situation where a shortened deadline yielded an especially successful outcome. “It was a billboard campaign for Nike, and I had four days to make two full resolution billboards… It was one of my first big clients so I wanted to make it outstanding. …and now I think [this Nike project] is one of my best works to date.”
Jaworowski is motivated not only by his artistic vision but also by a desire for self-improvement. “With every new project, I’m trying to develop my skills more… my dream is to leave even a little bit of a path behind me… And, of course, like any other designer, I would like to be remembered as a guy who pushed design boundaries…” Jaworowski goes on to thank his mentors like Bartlomiej Rozbicki and various designers from the North Kingdom, all of whom serve as a driving inspiration.
