How to inspire a designer

For many designers the winter - the time of gloom, a lousy mood, and the absence of any sign of inspiration, especially with such a wet and snow-free weather, as this year. I hear more and more from fellow designers and friends that the arms are lowered and there is simply no power to do - and I notice this on their own misfortune. However, above the nose, if we do not replenish the web creativity and beauty, it also begins to turn sour and grim. Today prepared for you a short article on how to overcome depression and to inspire a designer.

Try your hand at something new

Sometimes we notice that constantly revolves around the same workflow. Many have a standard set of programs used, and in them - the standard moves, techniques and technology. Why not enter for a variety of something new in your next project? New tools, software, plug-ins extend the time, take the next time something fresh. Having dealt with the new tool, you will not only raise their technical level, but also a moral step to step forward, and your project will be different from the others, you have made.Plus you get the experience for future work.

Attend a Conference

Conference - a great way to keep the creative spark alive. At any conference there is at least one colleague, designer, or a lecturer, who will open up new horizons for design. Looking at things from a new angle, you will definitely want to try anything to change, to bring, to add to your business process design. I bet you'll lope back to the desktop, eager to try out the new.

Again, what is important, not only speakers and organizers of the conference, because such activities - a great opportunity to establish new contacts, discuss with colleagues your ideas and plans for the future.

Read the blog design

Almost all designers follow the work of colleagues around the world. That's good, because otherwise it is impossible to stay in the stream of current trends and styles. In addition, many of the ideas presented by someone in the same light, you can touch up on a completely unexpected solutions, such as external and not related. Leafing through the galleries and blogs, you can enrich your instruments with new techniques and methods to learn the news and just enjoy the beautiful design - good emotions are always helpful!

Place the target

You do not need to prove that the sense of the work performed and the result - the best incentive for any of us. However, looming in the distant haze to meet target deadline is not always quite accessible to feel comfortable today. Set in front of the intermediate, easily achievable goals, or risk a completely demoralize the race for the "plan-up." So, initially set small, realistic goals, and as the performance of building up speed, passing to the more ambitious goals.

For you as a designer means a lot of visual images. Not a bad solution - create a personal library of references, which you can view at any time. Shoot all you like - because you never tell me when and where the image can be useful. Keep an eye only for the fact that the photographs were of good quality, because so hurt when you have the picture you want, suitable in all respects - except quality. Many skills are required for that, today's digital cameras allow you to make decent pictures in the Photo absolute layman. And when the time comes full of creative exhaustion, you can always open a folder with pretty pictures, which will please the eye and add inspiration.

Look for the external and internal stimuli

We were all around creative, created as man and nature. Look for anything better than walking by, and often you will start to spark ideas and immediately understand how to solve a particular task before you.Will you go to a clearly creative place like a museum, or simply stroll the park or forest, you will find everywhere is something that can affect your feelings.

Most helpful is simply to break away from the computer and go live in the world in search of stimulus and inspiration. Take something that does not require special brain activity, and you can concentrate on your creative tasks. For example, many of the usual run helps to disperse stagnant creativity through his veins.

Engage in creative hobbies

Many designers say that the work is their hobby, however, proved that the secondary creative hobby very well affect the overall level of inspiration and finding creative solutions. Hobbies - is that no pressure on you, then no one makes and adjusts, you can simply take the soul. This can be anything - playing the guitar or other instrument, or work on a novel series of paintings, handicrafts, or even breeding colors. While you will be able to find new ways to express their creative nature, you will not feel tired from daily work.

Find a common language with the client

One of the biggest killers of inspiration and motivation - client testimonials. You gave it to us for the full, twisted soul, did everything that the client only wanted to - but from the still dissatisfied. This is one of the most difficult challenges facing the graphic designer: keep your nose higher, despite all these reviews. In order to cope with it, you will certainly possible to find common ground with the client at all controversial issues of the project. There are no situations with the only option, and you can always find a solution that will satisfy both - and the client's needs and your vision. You are not required each time to redo the root, often need only small changes, so that your client was happy.
