The best designers push the boundaries on what’s acceptable, they take chances.
Inside the world of graphic design it is easy to get lost in the crowd, play it safe and just do what everybody else is doing. But why should you want to limit yourself and your creativity to something which has been done repeatedly by others before you? Are you a recycling plant?
Strive to be different, strive to stand out! When people speak of you and your work there should be a little excitement attached to it. Even amongst graphic artists you should be able to elicit some sort of reaction other than “Oh, he’s aiight”.
In a time like this where everybody who gets a copy of Photoshop suddenly becomes a graphic designer, ensure that you don’t get lost in that crowd.
My next post will be about how I strive stand out in this cut throat field [yes my own personal experience].
Granted I may not yet be the best, but I’m working on getting there one day.
