Watch Your Step

Ever wonder how time flies when you’re having fun? NO, no one ever thinks that when there are deadlines to be met. The exact opposite happens and before you know it where are the mock ups?!

I’m not going to lie to you guys but clients go for super affordable designers and in this day and age where everything is fast paced and incredibly overwhelming with graphics thrown at you from every crevice of the universe you got no other option but to adapt and fast!

No fear fellow friends! I got some tips to die for ( going for that spooky Halloween thingy, don’t know if you guys caught that …

SO rule number one: write them instructions down. Colors be flying your way and I mean the numbers to these specific color scheme the company you are working for may have. Definitely remember these! This cuts your working time in half. What I strongly suggest is to write it down on a post-it note and slap it on that laptop!

Next, DETAILS!  Remember always ask specific questions to make your design structure super sound and secure. Leave no room for error. Give more then one option or a variation of what you already have. Sometimes less is, always almost all the time, more!

Laptop on the go? Head over to your local cafe (was going to type Starbucks but I’m not sponsored by them…Get off that couch and try to be inspired to do some great things like inspiring others…. or more importantly go for that art piece you always wanted to make but never got around to doing it.

Explore! You never know what you’ll find along the way. Maybe you’ll come up with an interesting name for that business of yours that you always dreamt of having.

Lastly, having Actions and knowing shortcuts for Adobe software is not only essential but a must. This greatly decreases wasting time on the little things so you can sweat about the big things first!

Actions for Photoshop can be found via Google but there are a lot of talented designers, besides myself, of course, that give out FREE actions via their own blogs, yea I’m pretty cheap you guys XD.

The link above has 50 free actions and plenty of cool ones to chose from.
