We all have passions, goals and dreams. Graphic design was a passion I discovered by accident. I was originally learning website design at the time but realised my websites looked boring without graphics. In time as I began learning graphic design to improve my website’s look, it eventually hit me that I was more passionate about designing graphics. So I switched fields and only work on websites as a hobby.
My passion has gotten me this far, but I need to learn more about improving my designs skills and taking it to the next level. I’m more of a spontaneous guy but need to work more on my drafts, idea’s and being organised. I have a big dream that involves graphic design so I can’t give up the thing I love so much just yet.
This post I wrote because lately I been struggling for ideas for designs. Taught’s like I should give up has been creeping into my mind. I guess the reason I got stuck in a design rut was because I was comparing myself to other better graphic designers instead of improving myself. So I began reading graphic design articles and I feel more motivated now. You can learn a lot from other people when you stop comparing your abilities to there’s. Insecurity is only natural but dangerous if kept unchecked. So I will continue to design because its what I love to do.
