For the Thick Skinned


For the Thick Skinned


Man, design is a hard field. You are constantly expected to be creative, and as you put your heart out in visual form you keep getting criticism and negative feedback. And when in university, with negative feedback in the daily menu, you must have thick skin if you want to make it.
Today a student showed her font project, and when she presented her cover design the teacher physically winced, as if the badness of her work had real force that almost pushed the tutor off her feet. And it wasn't just the first time- every time the cover page popped on the screen, it was like another punch delivered into the teacher's brain.

Her cover design almost killed my teacher. That's real design power.
