Art was my first step in my life. It was great to unfold my imagination through Art and communicate with the artwork. Therefore, in my life, Art is a tool to express my world. As a designer, their techniques are not only important but also ‘Creativity’ and ‘Communication’ are important. Particularly, communication is significant to the clients and we must understand what they want to say. I think designers’ job is to demonstrate client’s thoughts with visual outcomes. Also, there is nothing as important as creativity unto artist. I think we should have our own personality and solid styles.
A designer’s philosophy defines what we wish to accomplish in design, and which principles of design we will use to do so. Identifying my design philosophy is an important part of the design processes. Among the designers, I admire Dieter Rams who is famous for minimalist design. He is a designer of the consumer products company Braun in Germany and a designer in Apple, Jonathan Ive is inspired his designs to make I Phone series. Dieter Rams is not the influences of my current works, but his 10 principles of design changed my mind. As an industrial designer, he always stressed.
“Less is Better”
I agree with this. Design has a wide range, so it is not a good belief in all areas, but we have to recognise what is unnecessary and what we really need. Furthermore, through the analysis, I found that there are not many
decorative elements in the typography of advertising. I think the reason is to make the product more readable and productive. The design becomes simpler to express messages more effectively and visually.
In identifying myself as a ‘Visual Reflector’ I used my strengths to start my projects. For example, I made plans and decisions by writing list and it helped me to manage my time well.
To conclude, I can define a design as the process of finding a creative solution through planning and production. Also, design is a process for others not for myself. Therefore, it is difficult to describe as a design if it’s too subjective, it is more like an artist.
