Designing a house is one of those activities that you need to do on a regular basis. It happens, it’s a part of life. But the more you create, the more you have to worry about. Some of the most frustrating moments in design come from things that are not really there, and not really part of the design process. Things that are just there because that is how you want them to be.
Like that annoying step where you look at something, and you realize it is a really great piece of furniture, but you really want to change it up somehow. Or the time when you finally put all of your design sketches into a final draft, and you realize that you are completely off-base.
This is one of those times when you really think about if it is true, and you have a good idea in your head, but still decide against it. You are saying to yourself, “Well, I can do it, but I’m still not really sure if it is right.
This is one of those times when you start to think about if you really do want to paint a room a certain way, or make a certain color scheme, and you realize that you probably don’t even want to. Maybe it is not the best idea to do those things, but you are just too chicken-shit to change your mind.
Good luck with handout design, your handout design is beautiful. It is a must have.
Well, it’s a whole lot better than you think it is. It is very clear that you know what you’re doing. The colors, the textures, and the designs are so well put together, there is no room for this to go wrong. I have not yet figured out what the actual problem is with it, but you have an issue with color matching and blending colors. I am very curious to see how you get on with it.
I think you have a lot of good points, but you also have a lot of flaws.
Well said. I agree. I have a similar issue with color matching and blending colors. The thing is that I feel like, when I’m working on a project, I want to see all the colors of every single color on every single piece of paper, and I’m not so willing to do that with a project. There is a time and a place for that.
If you’re asking if you should be using Photoshop and Illustrator, as a way to do so, no. A designer needs to know how to do color theory because it’s the only way to be sure that the colors you end up with match the colors you have on your monitor in your paint program.
In my opinion, I think some of the best design work comes from having a color theory book to guide you. The best color theory books are those you actually read. They should be color-by-color, and they should be referenced in the book itself. Also, the more you know about color theory in a particular medium the better you can be when it comes to color matching in that medium.
