My graphic design goal for this year is to make $500.
- I haven’t done any paid work yet.
- I’m still sort of in high-school dealing with my AS Level exams.
- I consider myself a logo, social media banner and poster designer currently.
- I’ve finished reading the following books:
100 Rules for the Visual Designer- By Netanel Kraus
The Vignelli Canon- by Massimo Vignelli
Designs Iron Fist 2nd Edition- by Jarrod Drysdale
Typography Crash Course- by Denise Bosler
Everything there is to Know about Logo Design- by bluesodapromo.com
- I can’t use InDesign
Here’s my course of action(what I’ll do to achieve this goal). It mostly includes the aspects which are in my control.
Finish reading Graphic Design School: A Foundation Course for Graphic Designers Working in Print, Moving Image and Digital Media
Finish reading a book on emotional intelligence
Finish reading a book on finance
Make a free online course on typography to gain exposure.
Design for and earn shout outs from trustworthy people with a decent amount of social media followers
Use affiliate links in the description of social media contents.
Monitoring growth every month
Create merchandise for trustworthy people with a decent amount of social media followers
Become the apprentice of a more experienced designer.
Create Instagram content and grow an Instagram account to gain exposure.
Any advice and suggestion(esp. do’s and don’t’s) on how can I achieve this goal
would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks to everyone in advance.
