  21. 21. Don’t suck. Don’t think you are the best designer in the world coming out of school. You are not. You have to sketch all the time to stay sharp. Sketch as much as possible. Try to get familiar with lots of software programs while in school. Keep a good focus on the bigger picture of a project. Its easy to get too closed in on 1 particular detail that you find yourself not really solving anything the project was initially intended to do. Sabotage your classmates work so you win the IDSA award at your school. Sketch to communicate & not to stylize Do not start drawing until you have the rough image (afterimage) of what you were going to draw in your brain Keep refreshing your eyes & perspectives (move away from the desk or zoom out & in back & forth) to keep focusing on your original intent My recommendation for becoming a better designer is to be flexible all times like sponge Present yourself well. Graphics, Speaking, etc. Come to your own conclusions on what is the best solution for a problem. Don’t rely on others for this information. Always tell yourself you have a lot more to learn! Study/analyze objects/products you like along with forms/shapes that appeal to you and develop your own style.Q/A - Back to basics Thoughts?
