A few years ago, I did not want to become a designer. I was a straight-A student, and even though design was something I was passionate about, I thought that as a career it wouldn’t make me sound smart (I know, what a snob). Fortunately, since then I’ve learned a lot about what it really takes to be a graphic designer, and ultimately, why I was completely wrong.
Beforehand, aside from the obvious technical aspects of graphic design, I was ignorant of what goes into making truly effective, thought-provoking designs. As I began my studies, I realized that graphic design can any point rely on a variety information from different fields, and at all times requires a psychological understanding of the human mind. Sounds a bit smarter now, doesn’t it? I certainly thought so. It really didn’t take long before I was proud that I took a leap of faith to enter this field of study.
So all you graphic designers, I see you. Let’s get to work.
