Megan Matsuoka describes herself as a serial design addict. She has made her addiction transparent with a self-set goal – in which she created a 100 Posters in 100 Days. She took inspirational quotes from a variety of influencers, she gave herself a rule that each poster had to be created within an hour and she used this project as a practical method of boosting her design skills and creating a system for her workflow. Megan Matsuoka essentially created a balance to her design addiction – by channeling her energy and desire to constantly create.

Megan was inspired by this quote from the book “Art and Fear” by David Bayles & Ted Orland: “The ceramics teacher announced on opening day that he was dividing the class into two groups. All those on the left side of the studio, he said, would be graded solely on the quantity of work they produced, all those on the right solely on its quality. His procedure was simple: on the final day of class he would bring in his bathroom scales and weigh the work of the “quantity” group: fifty pound of pots rated an “A”, forty pounds a “B”, and so on. Those being graded on “quality”, however, needed to produce only one pot -albeit a perfect one – to get an “A”. Well, came grading time and a curious fact emerged: the works of highest quality were all produced by the group being graded for quantity. It seems that while the “quantity” group was busily churning out piles of work – and learning from their mistakes – the “quality” group had sat theorizing about perfection, and in the end had little more to show for their efforts than grandiose theories and a pile of dead clay.”
