What I Want My Blog To Be In 2019
As I was thinking about my New Year's resolutions I tried to picture what I would want my life to look like a year from now. I thought about how I feel now, January 5th 2019, and how I want to feel sitting in the same position January 5th 2020.
I thought about how much of a process it's been for me to learn graphic design and figure everything out by myself by reading text books (yes really I read textbooks), watching thousands of videos online, and learning through trial and error. Then I thought about how I have no role model to look up to you and to learn from. I never had a mentor or anyone that could really offer me any advice on a career path in graphic design or offer criticism on what I'm doing wrong, etc.
I’m only 23, so I have A LOT MORE to learn, but I want to take everything I've learned so far and put that out into the world. By sharing my stories, my trials, and how I've gone through for my career so far I hope to set an example for what not to do and what to do for the people who are younger than me and are trying to build a career in graphic design.
I want to give a shout out to two people who have really influenced me through the years. One of them being Cassie Dulworth. She has no idea who I am, but she has really shown me how to create a holistic idea of design and how to be your own boss. She has shown me to believe in myself and my style and that you can make a career out of this.
In addition of Fabulous Fete has really influenced my style and shown me that you can make a career out of what you really love. She went through trial and error to create her hadn’t lettering style and I hope to do the same with my deign.
But when I think about it, there isn't really a person out there who's showing you the ups the downs how hard it really is to go through the creative process on a daily basis. So I want to share my knowledge and everything I’ve learned so far. I hope that it will help some young designers in 2019 and you all can watch me grow and learn. So be excited for content surrounding design. design trends, and advice. Think of me as the Carrie Bradshaw of graphic design.
