Perfection in Graphic Design: The Death of Creativity

As a Graphic Designer, being a perfectionist is good, right? Spending countless hours on details no one would notice, obsessing over just the right amount of whitespace, waking up in the middle of the night questioning your decisions, second guessing your final product even AFTER sending your concepts to your client. This is good, right?

Whether your reasoning is because you want to be like Draplin, Do, Janda, Beirut, or that your customers deserve nothing less than perfection, or that YOU don't want to deliver anything less than perfection,  these beliefs surrounding perfection in Graphic Design can cloud your better judgement.
