Since I’ve decided to dedicate this section of my blog to my own thoughts about my impending adulthood before and after college, so I figured you guys should probably get to know me a little bit.

I am a 21 year old Graphic Design graduate from The Art Institute of Indianapolis in Indianapolis, IN. I’m a transplant from West “By God” Virginia and I’m still relatively new to the art scene. I am a fast learner though, and what I don’t make up in skill I make up in hard work and dedication. I believe that if you ever stop trying, you’ve officially stopped learning.

Q: What do you consider “good design”?
A: I really think that particular question typically depends on what kind of designer you are talking to. Everyone has there own style when it comes to design, and sometimes those different styles can collide. Personally, I think there are 3 main aspects of what I consider “good design”:

1. Clean
2. Strong Concept
3. Timeless Appeal

Each of these aspects definitely play into one another, but without one the others will not be as strong. I think you should be able to get the gist of a design within seconds, and from there have a good judgement of what you’re expecting.

Q: What do you want to do after you graduate?
A: That my friend, is an excellent question. And like every other senior in college: I have no flipping clue. For the most part I have some sort of plan put together though. I definitely plan on staying in Indianapolis (better job opportunities), and working at my current amazing retail job. I’m always making sure I’m networking where ever I go, so when the time comes… I’ll be able to put my connections to good use.

I honestly cannot wait to get started in my career, but I also want to take my time and not rush to get “the job” right away. My goal after grad is basically what every other human being on this marble wants: To be happy.

Q: Do you have any advice for upcoming freshmen or current students in the creative field?
A: Basically, it all boils down to this: Love what you do. It sounds like a simple concept, it really does but honestly not all people can do it whole-heartedly. By loving what you do, you’re not only going to be:

A) Happy
B) Fulfilled

But you are also not going to let anything discourage you, ANYTHING! Believe me, there are plenty of things to be discouraged about.. especially in the creative field. Use those critiques to make yourself better, and never stop creating. There will be times where you feel all you create is cookie-cutter BS, but let me tell you something: the more you create, the less cookie-cutter BS you will have. In the end, you’ll not only have work you’ll be proud of, but also life that will be fulfilled. Love what you do, it’s the best advice I could give.

Q: So how does one become a “Part-Time Mug Collector?”

A: Step 1: Go to Goodwill.
Step 2: Find the mug section.
Step 3: Buy every single mug you think that is cute/designed well/hilarious, and all for the bargain price of .70 cents a piece! Step 4: Perhaps the most difficult step: Don’t go hunting for new mugs again for like a month. Saves you money and you have other important things to do like running a blog or paying off your student loans.

One of my coworkers is having a twin boys, and tomorrow is her “Thing 1 and Thing 2” themed shower at work. Decided to decorate the plain newsprint paper I used as wrapping paper for my present. Pretty satisfied with how it turned out! 👍✒️✏️ #DrSeuss #Thing1 #Thing2 #babyshower #twins #illustration #design #art #pencil #micron #prismacolor #marker
