  • Posted to Tips for young designers?, Jul 21, 2017

    I come from the graphic design / branding side of design and notice young designers seem to be concerned with finding that cool style (I know I did). BUT as designers we must be able to take inspiration from everywhere. Never limit yourself to a particular look or trend of the moment. You can run the risk of pigeon holing yourself into work that doesn't have a long lifespan. So don't worry about it because you will eventually find your style.

    Instead, look at art, architecture, nature, music covers, magazines, photography, bad design, good design, furniture, toys, websites, apps, wayfnding systems, books...whatever! Everything applies. In general just learn to appreciate all forms of design and try everything. Become a cultural sponge that can tap many influences on command. You never know when a particular client or project calls for a certain vibe. With that, inject your own twist to make it fresh. It will ultimately make you stronger.

    Lastly, it's about who you know. I don't like networking but, just be kind and never stop meeting people!

    I think the app is in its 3rd year. But with that, the work and UI design refreshes.

    Also, they release a book every year designed by one of the faculty. It's a big thing to get your work published in it.

    Used to play a game on FFFFound with my old design team where we would count how many image click throughs it would take until a porn thumbnail would hit the screen. Lowest number won.
