in my parent’s living room walls. Ever since that day I knew I wanted to be some kind of artist growing up.
Designing is an important part of history dating back to cave paintings, writing, books, maps and calligraphy. It expresses on what we see in our heads, which we can create visually for people to see around the world.
As an artist it’s always nice to think outside the box. Personally I like to be in my own comfort zone when I get things started. Being in a good state of mind brings the creativity out of anybody when it comes to designing and creating art.
When getting your ideas started always remember to start from scratch. For example if your looking to build and design a really awesome website draw out your template. Grab a piece of paper, notepad, or sketchpad and sketch up your concepts. No matter what level you’re in everyone starts from this process. Building and creating ideas helps the designer get a good sense on what your project should look like before designing it on the computer. Also another key thing to do is research. From the internet to the library you can find great resources of materials and things that will help you get started in your journey to become a great designer / artist.
One last important thing about being a designer is finding your identity. Basically it means what kind of designer are you? For example I like to describe myself as a hard nose hitting passionate creative beast meaning I’m a dedicated and motivated artist that simply loves to design. Generating energy in your design describes your personality within the style you create. It’s something everybody will remember you by.
Overall designing is just a huge process of planning, visualizing and creating. You’ll come across roadblocks during this time of process but remember to always be patient and positive. Once things start going keep the engine running because sooner or later you’ll find your way to success.
