    PRO·CRAS·TI·NATE |prəˈkrastəˌnāt; prō-| verb [ intrans. ] Delay or postpone action; put off doing something : "it won't be this price for long, so don't procrastinate."

    DERIVATIVES procrastination |prəˌkrastəˈnā sh ən; prō-| noun procrastinator |-ˌnātər| noun procrastinatory |-nəˌtôrē| adjective

    ORIGIN late 16th cent.: from Latin procrastinat- ‘deferred until tomorrow,’ from the verb procrastinare, from pro- ‘forward’ + crastinus ‘belonging to tomorrow’ (from cras ‘tomorrow’ ).

    Basically procrastinating is to leave for tomorrow what you could perfectly do today. And procrastination is, I would say, a typical designer "pathology". Overall if he/she does not work for a studio or company but freelancing.

    So procrastinators of the world, you are not alone. There are thousands of you out there and you are not lazy, you are sick! And there's only one way to heal: just do it! If you think you can do it today, you probably can. And if you think you should do it today, you probably have to.

    So whatever it is, stop reading this post and go do it. You'll fell better!!!

    Helvetica_132_

    I recently moved to Zurich, Switzerland. As I am a designer some people could think that I moved because Helvetica is my favorite typeface. Well, no. Impact is also one of my favs and I'm not going to move to a place suggested by that name…

    People in the First World basically move to a foreign country for two reasons: love or work. I did it for the first reason hoping I could improve the second reason. But it happened that Zurich is full of designers and nobody seems to need a designer from Spain that does not speak Swiss-German or at least German. And it happens that learning a language takes some time, but learning German takes even more. And Swiss-German is almost impossible for a non-native, as it has no grammar. So well, let's be patient.

    So if you think I can be useful for anyone of your non-profit projects, I have plenty of time.

    In the meantime, I will try to keep this blog updated with interesting stuff.

    By the way, I'm not the girl on the photo.

    Wanna follow?

Nothing is too wonderful to be true.
