Advice for Next Year’s Designers

Hey designer’s, this class is going to be a lot of work, but it will be well worth the effort once you look back and see what you accomplished. Be excided you’ll do great things! Here’s some advice from my experience:

1. Carry around a sketchbook. When you’re going throughout your day and an idea for one of your projects pops in your head, a sketchbook will allow you to write it down and even sketch out some ideas.

2. There will be a lot of work and projects at once, so start everything early. Time is goig to be your worst enemy in any project based class so make good use of it. Starting last minute will not only stress you out, it won’t allow your work to show what you’re capable of.

3. Have fun with your designs! Don’t think of them as projects that you dread, thing of them as unique chalenges. After all, this is what you have probably decided to do with your life. So make the most of your time here to explore new things and use feedback to make your work even better.

Take advantage of the fact that you are still in college and still learning. This is the best time to get creative and find your own style. Good luck this semester!
