Never Having to Work
Design is in everything we do as a society of people who thrives on attraction and appeal. Think about it, how many times have you found yourself wondering why you bought and item from your local grocery store while out shopping for one item and found yourself buying tons more? That is the power of design.Our job as designers are to twist, turn, and bring appeal to items that a potential consumer may normally not even take a second look at.You can say that it pays to have a very broad imagination to be a designer.
Simple Things Matter
Design is just about everywhere, from the labels on soda bottle, type on the toothpaste tubes, to the big production movie trailers. Just think about the little bathroom signs of the man and the woman, the person who came up with that design had to use his imagination to come up with that. Now you may say that’s a simple, well how about the handicap parking sign, or all the traffic signs that we use on a day to day bases? So never sell yourself short on what you can become, your design may be the next hot design that will shape and change the world as we know. My teacher told me about the guy who designed the Nike check sign that you see on all the Jordans around the world. She said that the guy sold it for about twenty bucks, and as we all know now that Nike is a trillion dollar Co. Something to think about huh? sometime its the simple things that makes the biggest impact and/or money.
How far you go in design depends on you dedication to it. Of course you have software that you will need, the popular being the adobe Cs4-6 program and they don’t come cheap. But as i said in the previous paragraph sometime it’s as simple as creating a useful design. There are limitless directions one can go when it comes to designing. I’ll tell like my teacher told me, find out what you like and what your good at and stick with it. Master one the try another section of this vast world of creativity, but most importantly have fun doing it,other wise what’s the point?
Live, Create, laugh, Repeat
If you’ve understood nothing i said about design, remember this, your design is only limited to your own imagination. I like being a designer not for the money, but because i enjoy creating something new. who knows maybe one day I’ll create the next Nike. Live, Create, Laugh, Repeat.
