Useful and easy short snippets that are doable.

Sven Jänchen's curator insight, October 2, 2013 9:11 AM

Vielleicht ein paar hilfreiche Übungen für die nächtlichen Stunden. In der Regel ist es aber deutlich besser, einem versierten Fachmann/Fachfrau die gestalterischen Aufgaben zu überlassen. Allein das Wissen um die Bedienung eines Tools macht noch keinen Fachmann ;-).

Adobe Illustrator will be quite useful for every progressive teacher. Spend some time now to feel confident and free in expressing your own ideas in the future

How to be a Better Designer

How to be a Better Designer | design research | Scoop.it

This guy nails it!

"...designers aren’t supposed to be the star of the show. They are backstage workers whose presence should go unknown in the work they produce. Your politics, voice, and creative tendencies all have to take a backseat to your client’s needs." 

Shahana Zubair's curator insight, November 24, 2013 11:33 PM

Every day we designers meet new clients which brings along new challenges , I think a designer should be so flexible in his/ or her way of designing what we should keep in mind is the clients satisfaction if the clients is satisfied  We are satisfied too we can't impose our own ideas on people we are facilitators and we facilitate people for their needs. 

Tyler Richendollar's curator insight, February 8, 2014 8:22 PM
