What makes a great designer?
Design is everywhere. Everything you see has a design. Have you never thought about that? Take the test, look around you.
Years of experience for sure, but there is more to being great than simply putting in the hours. Besides being able to create amazing work, you come to realize certain universal truths that guide the design profession.
What makes a great designer, in addition to his years of experience, are some tips that you must follow to be a professional.
UNDERSTAND BEFORE YOU START DESIGNING:
Understand the client, the product and the audience, as well as the challenge you are trying to solve.
Limitations lead to creativity and ingenious solutions that without constraints never would have been discovered or created.
DETAILS MAKE YOUR WORK STAND OUT:
Pay attention to them. Sometimes details make the whole design.
VALUES ARE EXCHANGED:
Collaboration is not just about individual work patterns, also about exchanging different opinions.
What’s the solution? try and fail. Practice illustrating the significance of solutions both verbally and visually.
The more you imitate the way professionals think and act, the better you will become in design.
