Beast Mode - have you found it?

How can we build our creative confidence?

This was the sole question of the hour-long discussion led by Amrit Singh - a graphic designer and creative director who you can follow on Twitter as @MrASingh.

He welcomed us into his world and gave attendees an insight on the struggles of coming from a traditional Indian background yet wanting to pursue a career in the Arts. Needless to say, his dreams were not fully supported and were seen as unorthodox by his parents. 

"Your family can be your rock, but also your mountain and barrier," he told us.

Still, a very optimistic Amrit explained that the answer is quite simple. He encouraged everyone to embrace their culture and the diversity around them in order to influence creativity. That is how he found his Beast Mode.
