Hello fellow blog readers. This is Derek writing you with the announcement of a new recurring post that will be appearing on day one of your work week. Starting on Monday you can look forward to “Monday Morning Misdemeanors” which are going to being looking into the petty crimes committed in the world of graphic design.
So often a design that could hold some merit is robbed of its dignity by a handful of details that are either overlooked or unnecessarily forced onto the page. Well, those days are going to be long gone in the next few weeks because you are going to get your education on the law books of graphic design.
Most of us have heard that ignorance of the law is not justification for breaking it. We know this to be especially true of God's law. Once we came to know the truth, we saw the error in our former selves and conduct ourselves in a new way. The same is true here, once you start to apply some better principles to your design work and become conscious of the most common errors you are going to see design in a whole new light. There will come a day when you will look back at the work you used to create and see a professional difference. We know that a lot of you out there run on tight budgets and often find yourselves doing more than just your job. That may see you straying into the realm of design. These posts will help you take your work to a new level.
I have been doing design full time for over 10 years now and still learn new things. It takes a lot of work and effort to be a good designer. These weekly posts will be a step in the right direction. At the end of the day they will only serve to add quality and credibility to your branding efforts.
So before you commit 3 or 4 misdemeanors on a daily basis, resulting in a file being created in your name as a repeat offender and have your charges upgraded to felonious misuse of design, please check this post out on Monday mornings. It will be worth your time.
