10 Steps to Becoming a Better Graphic Designer

By on April 11, 2012 — Updated on September 29, 2012

To become the best in whatever field you belong is not an overnight process; to become the best graphic designer is is also a process, and your goal should be to become a better graphic designer everyday.

How to be the Best Graphic Designer

1. Design.
2. Design more.
3. Design even more.
4.Design even more than that.
5. Design when you don’t want to.
6. Design when you do.
7. Design when you have imagined something.
8. Design when you don’t.
9. Design every day.

Yeah, it’s just another way of saying that learning is a process and practice makes perfect.

You won’t become the best graphic designer overnight. It takes much effort, dedication and time.
Formal education on Graphic Design may help you on how to be the best graphic designer, but if you have the passion, acquiring a degree on this field will become less necessary.

10. Keep designing.

    Hahaha…and I really thought I would learn something to improve my quickly trollified illustrations using only Paint and Powerpoint…(No Adobe Photoshop for me – too complicated!)

    But seriously, you do have a point, a definite exclamation point!
