The creative perspective

Visual design

When we talk about visual design I am referring to every different section within the design industry. From designing an interface with a great user experience to a folder or Powerpoint, it all comes down to some basic principles. When we find the right balance between the user experience, color, contrast, typography and sustainability we have created a foundation to establish and develop a powerful digital product.

To brainstorm about a concept where something challenges me to bring the best I have to keep moving forward is rewarding. Every project is different so it must have its own identity.

During my study we have learned to think outside the box and look at projects from a creative perspective. This approach really helped me te boost my creativity and to think differently in every project. During my internship I learned more basic principles in real projects. This was also the moment for me that I made the biggest progression, because besides the creative approach and design feeling I had something to combine it with and to help me to give my designs the needed boosts.

Within a good design there is always a style guide which represents the assumptions of the concept. This so called style guide consists of colors, shapes, typography, elements and guidelines for online and offline situations. I am really curious what the future has in store for me within the design industry, the only thing I could say is; “Let’s get it on!”.
