Graphic design is an ever-evolving practice. It seems that even the juggernauts of the past and present have never really mastered their craft, as something new is always popping up.
As such, there will always be a need to keep up to date with current things happening. As the saying goes, the secret to mastering any field is to become a lifelong student.
One way to do this is to read a few blogs that will present you with important information that you can use in a number of facets.
Here are three of the best blogs that you should read in order to learn more about graphic design.
Article Valley is an interesting website that is generalist in nature. We describe the website as “generalist” because in this website, there are so many helpful articles that are being written and that you can learn from each day.
A key topic that they write about is how you can be more efficient in web design, particularly when it comes to cost.
The website has more than half a million authors already. This ensures that there various topics will be covered, and a variety of fresh perspectives will be available to you.
GoMediaZine is a tutorial website at its core. The website gives free tutorial videos and advice to graphic artists and designers. There are also free things that are made available to you if you sign up.
Their tutorials include ones for logos, for websites, and even for specific tools used for a specific task. One example of this kind of tutorial is how to use Photoshop to design a website interface.
Creative Nerds is more of a holistic website that designers should read. It does not really tackle much on specific tools or specific tasks.
Instead, this website talks about what designers need to do to become one of the world’s best designers. It seems broad, but they lay out steps that people can do to be noticed, hone their craft, and get to the top of their profession.
Blogs are a really great source of information to help develop your craft and yourself. These are only a few blogs out there. However, GOHHA would like to push you to go out there and find more blogs that cover the topics you like.
Don’t stop learning and growing.
