Know About The History Of Designing

There is no way you can do something innovative if you have no idea of what went before you. It is important that you know about designing history and the origin of these ideas. The best way to learn something is to study it from scratch.

So bring your books out, study the history of designing and learn from where these ideas and concept came from. Explore the past to build your future.

Know The Science

Most of the people who choose graphic designing on a whim that they won't have to study. And if you are one of the few individuals who believe that the only thing a graphic designer does is let their imagination run wild and create some sort of masterpiece without any thought and proper science then you are absolutely wrong.

Before a graphic designer starts designing, he/she have to learn the basics of visual art such as composition, balance, color, and forms in materials. All of this contributes to understanding how human beings pursue visual images. Always remember that design is a little bit of art and a little bit of science. So it is absolutely stupid to think that you can be a successful graphic designer without properly learning the science behind it and an appropriate qualification.

Work On Your Sketching Skills

It is a lot difficult and time taking procedure to print your ideas on a computer than on a sketchbook. So a lot of graphics designer prefer and use traditional sketching methods. It saves a lot of time and complexity of doing the same task on a computer.

However, sketching is not something you can learn in a week or so. It requires constant practice from initial stages of learning. We recommend you to maintain a proper sketching schedule and book especially when you are working on a design. This will immensely improve your working skills and make you more efficient.

Copy Your Idols

By copying your Idols we don't mean that you copy their lifestyle. Just their work and don't misunderstand it for stealing their work. What you need to do is try and recreate their workpiece. This will help you a lot in understanding how a certain effect is created and different techniques that are used to achieve those complex designs. You can not possibly hope to learn these things just by looking at them. You must at least try them out yourself once.

Think About The Concept

Like we mentioned before designing is not just about the art and good visuall/ graphics. There is more to it. So you need to think about the concept behind your work. What is the purpose of it? What does it want to depict? What kind of action is it supposed to precipitate?

You can think of the design as the concept which has a specific work to do. So while working think the concept behind your work, not just the visuals and how it looks.

Inspiration

Creativity can't be used up, actually it's the opposite the more you use it, the more you have. However, we can get frustrated when we new fresh ideas don't pop out in our brain. So it is important you have something to inspire you.

You can maintain albums by clicking pictures, maintain a sketchbook. To be exceptionally good you need to make designing a part of your daily life.
