I’ve never been the religious type…
BUT that quote is the closest thing to the bible for designers I have been able to find. Besides, religion is supposed to encourage you, give you hope and faith. Something about a book listing rules right and left for me isn’t appealing. I’ve always been someone who (for the most part) can decide what’s right from wrong and I don’t think I need a book to tell me how to do so. But this quote is one I’ve come across many times on the internet. As a junior Graphic Design major I totally understand what this means, and it’s something that gives me hope that I am doing the right thing. It tells me what I feel on a daily basis IS normal, and I am definitely NOT going crazy.
By this I don’t mean this quote is my bible, or that I’m going to convert to a made-up religion. This is just something that gives me HOPE in the future, and FAITH in myself and my designs. Being from a small town and a religious family, I’ve noticed that when life gets hard many people turn to their faith in Christianity and the Church for guidance. I’m not any different than the next person, I have struggles I face everyday. This is just one of the things I have been lucky enough to find to give me the encouragement I need. It’s something I wanted to share with you. 🙂
