Hey Chris, your welcome! and it's a great article for sure.

That's a really good point indeed, I have quite some brainstorm / design sessions with my Product Manager (as I'm the only designer). In which I always feel the need to make every piece great and original as well. I want to proof that I'm creative and know my stuff. This could really make it hard for me when I feel like I'm not going in the right direction.

And I agree with your "not liking" argument. I sometimes get feedback from my team like it's to shiny or to bright.. Interesting but what to do with it?

Awesome that I've inspired you to write a new piece. Looking forward to it!
