Practice the Design

During the development process, a visual designer must be aware of the things he/she sees and lives through everyday routine. This will enable a perspective that is common yet unique to each and everyone. Much like when one drives around in a car, we notice the billboards, signages, posters etc., – these everyday links to what is current and valid must be inculcated into the practice.

  • Your design should express everything through visuals, message, tone, and graphics.
  • The design should be specifically based on what you see and to whom it is communicating and what are the target audiences.
  • A graphic designer should understand the inclusion of images and words whether they work together or not! For example, a movie poster will only attract viewers only after the inclusion of impressive words.
  • Know what doesn’t work for the given design and it will be a key to produce an awesome design that can also come from your intuitional mind and after being successful, you’ll be a successful graphic designer.
