Everybody has dreams, goals, and aspirations. Sometimes they reveal more than you think. Overshadowed values, forgotten passions, or a moment of gratitude may come through if you take the time to reflect on what you would really, really want in your career.
We asked our members what their dream project would be. Just like their talents and perspectives, their responses are diverse and inspiring!
What Is Your Dream Project?
In my dream, it’s a few years ago and I’m working on Hillary Clinton’s campaign. But since time machines aren’t real yet, my more realistic dream is to find someone equally passionate, driven and Wonder Woman-y, and do my darndest to help them win.

Something that allows me to combine being outside (hiking/backpacking/etc) with building a product that helps people do the same.
Tracy Osborn, Entreprenerd
To travel with a band like red hot chill peppers and publish a sketchbook on the whole tour…
Definitely my dream project is working on any design or development within the horror film industry, or working on a major horror film website or magazine (especially Rue Morgue).
That’s hard to narrow down to one! Branding anything that’s close to my heart. I love too many things and have too many interests. Anything dogs.I also have half a certification in a method called Behaviour Adjustment Training that helps rehab dogs with fear issues. Both my dogs are fearful of different things, so that’s something that’s important to me. I also have a keen interest in therapy (I go to psychotherapy myself) and so creating a brand that helps shed some of the stigma surrounding that would be something that I’d be deeply passionate about.
I also come from a background of the performing arts – I’ve trained extensively in ballet, play the piccolo, and have recently taken up singing, so I’d love to work on projects within that field. Interiors are another passion, so environmental graphics for commercial real estate developers is another area I’m aiming to get into.
My interests are diverse and constantly expanding. Sex education, women’s issues, holistic living are some others. I just recently got into investing and think that’s something people need to learn about earlier, more accurately and in layman’s terms.
I know you were asking for one but I really can’t pin it down! That’s what I love about branding – making information accessible, changing perceptions, and being able to work in diverse fields and learning with each new project.
When I think about the ideal client, it’s not necessarily specific to an industry, but more an alignment of the client to us in terms of chemistry and , budget, and a visual communication problem that we’re excited to solve. It’s more about how we work together than what we’re working on – anything is interesting if you see it from the right perspective.
I think I am already working on my dream project… something that involves drawing with people.

It may be obvious or take some time to consider.
Whatever the answer is, consider how your current work, passion projects, or network could help make it a reality.
