When creating Graphic Design, most of my projects are inspired by everyday things and I try to be creative with ordinary objects. I also get ideas for my projects from looking at other projects. It gets my creative juices flowing and ideas come to me easier. When people view my work, I want them to interpret it in a way that is meaningful to them, as well as understand the message I'm trying to convey as the creator. Over the past year, I have learned that as a designer I keep things logical and conventional. It's hard for me to "think outside the box." I also learned that my graphic design can be a lot more successful and effective than I thought it would be. Throughout the course of the year my work has greatly improved. In the beginning of the year my work was sloppy and not very well thought out. Now, my design ideas have improved as well as my skills in Photoshop and Illustrator. My designs are neater and a lot more professional looking.
