Brilliance is something we are constantly striving for. We only set ourselves up for this glamorous moment when actually that is just a small part of the story. We stare at blank screens, get distracted by messages and tweets, take coffee breaks and come back to a blank screen when waiting for the one moment when it all comes together and brilliance strikes… but that is not how it works. Sometimes we get so caught up in waiting for brilliant ideas to hit us, all the while failing to realize that brilliance only works when we do! Success, failure, trial and error, struggle, celebration… all of these have to coexist to build up to the moment often glorified as brilliance. This issue is inspired by the underlying beauty of it all. We want you to take the journey with us. Part glamorous, part gritty, all the way brilliant.
