If you have decided to start your career in web designing then here are some vital points that you always should remember or try to remember. Because learning Web Designing is not only about knowing the tools/ softwares that are used in the designing process. Tools can only help you to achieve your task successfully and more efficiently and in a more professional way.
But without designing skills it will not help you a lot. Ultimately design comes from your idea which you translate through some softwares. Without the idea design is nothing.
So if you have already decided to become a web designer or dreaming to be a rocking web designer, then focus on the core principles of designing rather than just learning the softwares, because remember, just buying good pencils, colors and canvas doesn’t make you an artist, these are just the tools to help you. So the same is true for Web designing, because buying and installing popular designing softwares don’t make you a hotshot web designer. Is it ?
Now you may be thinking, what about the software. Obviously the softwares are necessary because without appropriate software how you will be able to bring your idea into reality. So obviously mastering in these softwares are necessary but here I am trying to say that at first focus on designing learn the inner meaning of designing then practice tools.
Today in this article I will discuss what are the techniques which will help to become not just good but gradually a better web designer where design will be your core objective.
I think, to become a better web designer there need some basic practices on a regular basis. Today the main objective of writing this article is to point out those best practices.
So here we go:
Eye for designing:
If you are thinking what it actually means, then read it out. You know, what distinguishes an artist/ designer from other normal people, it’s how they look on everything. They find inspiration on everything surrounding them.
My main reason of telling this to you is, if you want to be a designer then at first try to bring the attitude or curiosity inside you. Find inspiration from everything which are surrounding you. Because inspiration is everywhere so just keep looking. Believe me it’s a very important lesson for a designer.
Make a habit of reading:
It’s another one important practice which will help you in long run, so start reading. What you will read ? Read different books, don’t just read books, with different books read different blogs because now a days blogs are one of the best way to stay updated in your respective field. So make it a habit of reading different books & blogs.
Not only you will learn a lot but you will always be with fresh ideas and knowledge. So keep reading.
Give more focus to practical knowledge:
Designing is all about how you are designing, so your design skills only come out and sharpen gradually if you are in a constant practice. Because by just reading, anybody can’t be a designer, as you need to start scribbling to start drawing, just like that sit down and start designing. Because designing is more about doing than reading.
Don’t be over shadowed by others work:
As designing is a creative field so sometimes we become so much inspired of great designer’s work that we loose our uniqueness. So what I believe is be inspired but never let the inspiration dilute your original thinking.
So these are some of the most essential and generic gyan (knowledge) to become a better web designer. So keep these things in mind.
After reading this article you must be thinking, what about different software tools and languages that’s highly necessary to become one successful designer. Don’t worry in the next post I will discuss on those topics.
But at first note down and try to follow the above mentioned points.
