Don't believe your own hype
Try some things with no end result
Have a goal ( or many )
Be aware
Keep learning
Talk to other designers
Work hard
Make mistakes
Talk to people other than designers
Don't use technology as an excuse
Be true to what you believe in
Be humble
Don't think about it - DO IT
Don't talk about it - DO IT
Be selfish
Have fun"

" Good graphic design is the result of endless research for beauty in things.

It is hard to teach graphic design as there are no boundaries and limits to it. Try teaching(learning) the basic laws of composition, colour, typography, photography and then tell the ones you teach to break those laws.

Great weapons of graphic design:
Repetition | Substracion | Addition | Contrast | Rythm | Colour contrast | Collaging | Photo manipulation | Texturing | Scaling | Deconstruction | Adaptation | Decontextualisation | Morphing ... of course there are ton-wise more weapons, but those are just a few which I tend to use very oftern. " ( some guy )

" Give back what you learn... share it ... make others exceed your boundaries ... and try to pass/exceed them ... a good way to progress. " ( some other guy )

" Creativity is concept, structural, progressive thinking."

The nucleus of inspiration. It's the key factor that drives to genius. Through perpetous experimentation one can achieve the absolute."

" Trying to look good limits my life.
Everything I do always comes back to me.
Everybody thinks they are right.
Money does not make me happy.
Thinking life in the future will be better is stupid, I have to live now.
Complaining is silly, either act or forget.
Having guts always works out for me.
Helping others helps me." ( Stefan Sagmeister )
