In this second episode of Built By Hand, Ben’s mission is to do creative research for his personal website. He’ll be collecting references and resources from other designer’s work with a two-part goal: to get inspired and figure out the visual direction for his website. Does the process of research and inspiration that he’s refined over the past decade apply to a personal website? Do the same tactics work? How hard is it to find inspiration for your personal brand if you’re better at creating from a position of empathy.
