Sharpen your design skills, part one

We'd all like more time to be creative. More time to complete tricky briefs. More time for those award-winning ideas to gestate. More time to finesse and hone a job before it needs to be dispatched. The problem is that deadlines are tight and clients often demand changes that require action in a heartbeat. Sometimes it can feel that time itself is against you.

But who needs problems when solutions are readily available? There are many ways to buy yourself an extra five minutes here or a spare ten minutes there, and that's why we've put this article together: to help you take control of your workflow so you can spend less time doing the grunt work and more time being creative.
