* creative and flowing ORIGINAL drill should always score higher than same ole, same ole box cutter drill. If we've been there before and seen that, well then we've been there before AND seen that!
* being unique in design is what "we" strive for in this art form.
* imitation might be a sign of acceptance but be careful not to lose YOUR identity.
* create your OWN identity, follow your OWN path to design.
*** transitions will make or break you, simple and clear as that.
