5设计学生刻板印象避免

+$So you’re at design school with your essential kit. And you’re doing pretty well. So well, in fact, it might be going to your head. If you don’t want your design career to be dead in the water before you even graduate, take heed of the failings of those who have gone before you.

+$While there are plenty of proactive positive actions you can take to set yourself on the path to success, there are also some pitfalls to avoid. Here are five archetypal design student attitudes that are sure to make you crash and burn, and give your fledgling career the rainbow doughnut of death…

+$And when you have made certain these student types don't describe you, you'll need to make sure that portfolio is in order. Luckily, we've got some brilliant组合示例+$to help you get straight into the job market.

01.扯掉商人

他们说灵感与模仿之间存在着微妙的界限。不要越过它。作为一名学生,你是一张清脆的空白纸,随时可以涂上新鲜的想法。但是,如果你扯掉别人的风格,你可能也会成为一个受到重创的旧复印机。

+$News can travel quickly if you plagiarise, too, and if the creative in question calls you out and burns you publicly on social media, it’s a long way back if you want to be taken seriously again. The industry is smaller than you think (see for yourself in our article dissecting+$how designers deal with plagiarism)。

02.走路的陈词滥调

我们都知道创意应该如何看待和着装的陈旧刻板印象。但紧身牛仔裤,格子衬衫,胡须和眼镜不是设计师所做的。不要把你的学生贷款用在装扮上,并期望成功落到你的腿上,因为你可以融入其中:毕竟,这是关于脱颖而出的。

任何有价值的设计工作室都会重视您的投资组合,您的态度以及您的想法。无论如何,如果那是你的风格,那就把自己打倒 - 但如果没有,那就做你自己,你就可以开辟自己的风采。

03.傲慢的人

让你的自我受到控制 - 你仍然有很多东西需要学习[照片来自Unsplash的Melanie Hughes]

+$Nobody likes an over-inflated ego – particularly from a student. And yet, it’s an all-too-common sight. Sure, you’ve landed your dream placement and are on track for a first-class degree: great, good for you.

不要开始支撑大厅,从屋顶上掀起你的成就。并且永远不要认为你超越了你给予的任务。如果你认为自己是上帝的礼物,你的潜在工作室伙伴很快就会感冒。

在展示位置或第一次真正的设计工作中,您不必是棕色的。但是 - 就像我们的文章一样如何将设计实习转变为工作+$points out – it does pay to be humble, to soak up the experience around you, and to go above and beyond whatever is asked of you.

04.仓促的桥梁燃烧器

还有另一种客户关系[照片来自Unsplash的Dawn Armfield]

这完全取决于你认识的人,当你第一次开始建立一本通讯录时,每一本都是金粉。你永远不知道他们可以向你介绍谁,或兔子洞可以带领的地方。

珍惜这些关系。培养他们。这可能需要一些时间 - 而且要记住,它们不仅仅是要勾选的方框或要爬梯子的梯级。他们是人。如果你从第一次尝试踩到门后得到回击,请亲切并稍后再试。不要失去你的冷静,并在汽油已经摇摇晃晃的桥梁。

05.粪便抛光机

如果你已经克服了前四个障碍,你应该是一个谦虚,诚实,头脑清醒的创意,具有个人精神和对学习的热情。简而言之,你将成为大型就业者。

最后一步是重视实质和风格。这一切都很好,有能力让一些东西流行起来Photoshop CC,但这不是伟大的设计。养成在开发之前将你的想法重新回到绝对基础的习惯。如果它们作为缩略图草图或单行间距工作,那么您就可以了。

简而言之,如果一个伟大的想法不是项目的核心,那么不要只是将那个粪便卷起来,并在其中粘上烟火。你以后会感谢我们。
