Design habits…

Welcome back students!

Now that we are back from spring break feeling fresh … lets take a moment to think about our design habits.

What do you do everyday related to design? Sketchbook, homework assignments?

Poster Design – This designer is designing some really amazing posters based on daily newspaper articles. Thank you, Jillian for showing us this inspiring designer!

I’ve done many projects over the years where I set up a “system” for myself to work. This keeps me organized. Would a “system” help you? To me, art is like exercising.. you have to warm up in order to be able to run a marathon. Whatever your system is, keep at it and great things will happen…

Some ideas for routine habits:

1. Look at design blogs daily

2. Go to the library once a week to look at books

3. Once a month, check out a new local gallery

4. Sketch every day

5. Read Design Magazines once a month (library or bookstores have them to look at for FREE!)

6. Give yourself 15 mins every day to make a mess – not working on a school or client project (I do this!)
