I’m currently a student at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. The school’s pretty tough. The environment makes you question your constitution constantly. There’s alot of work and you tend to equate your character with your work. It’s difficult, I know, to see them apart after all your dear investments.
Here are some good tidings I’ve collected throughout the year:
If you lack confidance in yourself, people will lack confidance in you.
Do not think about the insignificant.
I watch what I do to see what I really believe.
One kind word can warm three winter months.
If you want to be liked, do likable things.
People will take you at your own evaluation / People will catch and mirror your emotional states.
The way in which we experience and interpret the world obviously depends very much indeed on the kind of ideas that fill our minds. If they are mainly small, weak, superficial, and incoherent, life will appear insipid, unintertesting, petty and chaotic.
You’re a genius all the time.
A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks.
Why so serious?
Love starts in giving—of all expressions and manifestations of that which is alive in us.
Being a master of design means nothing unless it supports a message that leads to action.
Graphic design is a means, not an end. A language, not content.
