This is my first post and I'm kinda new to all this so bear with me.
I'm a Graphic Designer in London and for a while I've been thinking about getting a blog together. What would I write about? Wife, kids, photos, work? I've finally opted for the Graphic Design industry as a whole. I've been hugely inspired by Russell Davies and I'd love to be to Graphic Design what he is to Planning. That's a lofty ambition, but stick around, you might be surprised.
All good design starts with a brief, so;
1. The design of this will be a simple as possible.
Just black and white if I can get away with it. I'm a big fan of function dictating form. Like Josef Muller-Brockman. I also agree with that great quote from the Design Museum, the one about "the object of mankind is to keep simplifying things not making them more complicated". Oh and I'll try and find out what that quote is.
2. I'll use photos.
I always have a camera with me, so I'll try and illustrate my points with decent images.
3. I'll update regularly.
Otherwise I'll look like a dick.
4. I'll only ever write about Graphic Design
Except when Graphic Design crosses over into other areas. But I certainly won't mention the kids, the wife, the dog, the car etc etc. This blog is about Graphic Design, OK? While I'm at it, I'll always spell Graphic Design with a capital G and D. Just because.
5. I will write about the industry warts and all, hence the anonymity.
I might change the anonymity bit, but for now it stays.
