My friend Mimi turned me on to an awesome site, Good Fucking Design Advice.
You just keep refreshing, and it keeps doling out the wisdom and the four-letter words.
Much of the advice is technical and process-oriented, but can apply to many trades:
Some is about harnessing your creativity:
And life coaching:
But whatever advice you draw from the site's engine of ancient design wisdom, two things hold true:
1) The advice itself is indeed, good, and
2) The fact that ad people really fucking swear a lot.
Oh, and check out the "family friendly" version. It's effing hilarious.
