What caught my attention while reading advice from the previous students was how important sketching was. During our graphics class in bootcamp, we were always made to sketch our thoughts and turn in our sketches before moving to indesign. However, I really had no idea what I was doing and we were never really taught how to do the sketches in order to get a good design, so I never took it seriously. To me, sketching seems like the equivalent of a rough draft or outline of an essay, which I never do. But perhaps my writing would be better if I did. Similarly, maybe my designs would be better if I did take sketching seriously. I am also not an artist so drawing intimidates me, as well as using indesign for art. Another comment I saw ties in to this, it said that the technology doesn’t make you a great designer. But then again, if you don’t know certain tools exist that could possibly achieve the look want then you’re out of luck. But I guess that’s why we’re here to learn.
