Final Thoughts Reflection

At points, reading the Final Thoughts posts was like reading inspirational messages. My favorite quote was, “You won’t become a good designer by never taking chances.” That line captured my attention and seemed to link with advice that other students gave. One student said that good design is innovative. I felt that the two pieces of advice connected because design could not possibly be innovative without someone taking a chance. So that is something I plan to work on this semester. While I know that it takes time to develop into a truly great designer, this advice has at least given me some understanding of what a great designer does. They do not simply imitate what has been done millions of times before, they take inspiration from those things and change it up in a way that produces something terrific. Something that resonates with its audience. I will keep this lesson in mind while creating designs this semester.

  1. I’m so glad you learned this, Kassie. Great design must be fresh and delightful. It’s hard to do that by imitating the same old thing.
