Thick-rimmed glasses might
This won't make you a designer:
So What is Graphic Design?
Find Your Style
Freshen up that steez
Unique is a Limitation
Better to solve the problem
It's not about being the prettiest flower in the bunch.
Don't Stop Learning
Avoid the 'plastic' stare
Stop learning and you very quickly fall behind.
