“Although my problems might look a hell of a lot different they’re actually, fundamentally, the same. Loss feels the same. Heartbreak feels the same. The fundamental hurtful things for a human are all the same.”
“The others have always been… Like Niall, for example. He’s the most lovely guy in the world. Happy-go-lucky Irish, no sense of arrogance. And he’s fearless. There are times I’ve thought: ‘I’d have a bit of that.’ Zayn, back in the day. He could relate to me on a nerves level. In the first year we were both the least confident. But Zayn has a fantastic voice and for him it was always about owning that. Liam always had a good stage presence, same as Harry, they’ve both got that ownership. Harry comes across very cool.

I was thinking about pursuing graphic design. Do you have any tips about how to go about it? Love your blog btw! ＼(*＾▽＾*)／
hello anon! thank you for the kind words ;v;7 i’m glad to see another friend pursuing the wonderful world of graphic design!
here are some tips for general beginners:
learn how to use the adobe suite
◦ Photoshop, illustrator and InDesign are all important tools as a designer! get a head start and learn how to use these and remember shortcuts and learn different tools! it’s a great kickstarter.
begin by developing a portfolio ◦ fill your portfolio up with 5-6 bodies of work you’d like to show, your best being the last. fill it up with drawings, digital mock ups, pictures of physical mock ups etc. it’ll be important when applying for colleges/unis
◦ observed different types of graphic design, type, web design, packaging. keep up with trends and try to unravel the processes someone took to get there.
accept that failure is there◦ yup. this is important when pursing design. your first concept will never be your greatest- and tweaking things will lead you to successes!
i’m sorry if this isn’t really sound advice (im in the middle of a terrible cold rn), but here’s some other advice posts i have for design students/people pursing design!
