What I've Learned So Far.

In the world of art I think the thing that will stick with me through it all will be this past weeks lesson about grids and how to use them. People look at magazines not knowing that it's not just pictures and words. It's more complex than that. You have thousands of typefaces to chose from and you have so many other variables to put into your designs. One thing I think people forget about is to use grids when you're making something. In the past couple weeks I have learned that useing grids really help with taking something that looks okay by the to making something look great with focusing on alignment and structure. It's important to always use grids making any design that you could be doing whether it's a business card, a poster or anything of that sort. Every designer should also think about Hierarchy and the way your design is presented it is one of the most important aspect of being an artist. I think if you don't get the concept of that you can't begin to be a designer. I think these things I will take with me through my journey of becoming a designer.


  1. I agree that using grids is one of the important elements when working with typography. As we learned, we can eyeball it and try to align it perfect, but without a grid it will still be off. Great post, thank you for sharing.

  2. I do agree with Hierarchy being important but what do you think is the least important thing you learned?
