I’m currently studying a part-time Graphic Design Degree so I can develop the skills needed to become a Teacher in the not too distant future. I’ve been studying this since early June this year and so far it’s been a revealing experience. Having been conditioned by the design industry for the last 20 yrs as a designer it’s natural for me to try and think on my feet, and get to the big idea as quickly as possible. The faster we get things done, the happier the client is, and we all get paid. Whilst that may be true for fast artwork projects, I’ve discovered I need to totally recalibrate my thinking for my Degree Studies. Instead of rushing ahead, I’m enjoying researching subject matters and then delving deeper into these, via different perspectives.
