Looking Back

Before Studying Graphic Design I had taken on many other projects. At the time I felt like these projects were amazing and that I had conquered a great feat by accomplishing them. Enrolling in school I felt as if I was ahead of the rest of my classmates. Slowly I learned that was not the truth. While in school I began to learn many new techniques in the world of Graphic design. With these lessons I one day decided to look back at my old work. As I flipped through my binder, which I once called a portfolio, I was horrified at what I saw. I had violated many of the principles of Graphic Design. I felt as if I found an old drawing from when I was a preschooler. Has anybody else felt this way about their past work?

  1. I feel the same way. I look at stuff I did in high school that I thought was fantastic at the time and my gag reflexes kick in. I think being able to look at past work and see what went wrong is humbling, it reminds me that I’m growing as a designer now and that I continue to grow everyday.
