To be a graphic designer, a graphic designer must be fully aware of his own skill set, work ethic, and technical knowledge. To do this, the graphic designer must first be self-aware and self-motivated. To achieve this, the designer must possess an “aha” moment. A “aha” moment is an unexpected, one-time reaction to a challenge, a turning point, or a new idea.
I think that self-awareness is key. While being self-aware is essential to knowing what you know or don’t know, it’s not enough. Most people don’t even know what they don’t know about their own abilities and knowledge. As a result, many people, when faced with a challenge, don’t even know how to respond. For example, I am not a good swimmer.
I couldnt swim.
This is very relevant to the design job description. While the best designers are the ones who are self-aware, I think the best designers are the ones who have to be self-aware. If you dont have self-awareness, you can’t really be an effective designer. So, to be an effective designer, you have to be aware of your own knowledge and abilities. Because then, you can develop strategies to overcome your weaknesses.
I am not sure how I feel about the design job description. If I could ask, how do you know if you are an effective designer? Because the best designers are the ones who are self-aware, I guess.
This is the same issue as the “self-awareness” part. Self-awareness is a pretty broad term, and the difference between self-aware and not-self-aware is pretty specific. Self-awareness means your own ability to think or act on your own and to be able to make decisions. But having a specific set of abilities is not self-awareness. That sets you apart from other people.
So does that mean that you can’t be a good designer? It’s hard to imagine that this is true, but it’s not hard to imagine what it means to be a good designer. So far I’ve only seen the best designers make a lot of money, but I see plenty of good designers who are barely making a living. Some do it just because they love to make stuff and don’t care where it ends up.
A designer does not just make stuff, they make stuff they like and are passionate about. That can still mean a lot of money, or a lot of time, or a lot of effort, but I think the key point is that we need to be able to make decisions. If we can’t, we’re not really a good designer.
Designers are very good at a lot of things. The key to becoming a good designer is to have a passion for what you do, and a desire to make something that is truly unique. I have no idea how a designer gets paid, but it is a big problem. I think designers, especially those without design degrees, should get a degree in something like psychology, sociology, or human development. It will help you to understand how designing works, as well as what motivates a designer.
The last thing I’d like to say is that I think design should be a little more about creativity than it is.
