PROFESSIONAL GRAPHIC DESIGNERS MANIFESTO
I hold myself accountable for all the mistakes and bad decisions I make, however I also consider this as part of the learning process.
I believe that I know a fair bit about my subject. This does not consist of many names and dates, but more about the lessons and practices of the subject.
ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND
I do understand most of what is said, but in my own way of thinking. On the other hand my thought process is too random and scatological to be that of a professional graphic designer.
I believe that I have integrity, yet it lacks a will power behind it.
I can’t say that I am the most proactive person, mainly because I am rather lethargic at times.
UNDERSTANDS THE RULES OF DESIGN
I understand a large amount of the rules of graphic design and I try my best to keep to them.
STRATEGIC PROBLEM SOLVER
Problem solving is one of the few things I am good at, although I do lack a strategic methodology.
I am happy with my designs around seventy percent of the time. Nevertheless this happiness is short lived, when in hindsight I apply the experience I have gained creating the piece and know that I should produce a better standard of work in the future.
I am not an effective communicator because of the many inconsistencies in my thought processes and how it translates to my work. My grammar is also not up to the standard I am striving for at present.
THE ABILITY TO UNDERSTAND OR ACHIEVE
I have the ability to understand and achieve. In spite of this, my achievements and goals are far different from most others. Just being where I am at present in my life is something of an achievement for me.
My use of visual expression is very much like the way I think, rather convoluted and hard for others to understand. This is what makes my work unique.
I make designs but I wouldn’t call myself a designer, as my creations are only for myself and to fulfill my own goals. A real designer makes their designs for others and receives money in return for their services.
QUALITY AND OUTPUT
My work can be of a high quality, but I feel that I can be sporadic in maintaining the same standards throughout my work.
ORIGINALITY AND CREATIVITY
I would say that I am both rather original and creative, mainly due to my madness and methodology of rarely repeating my artistic actions.
