Designers need to be on time

    As a social person, and let other people wait is no common sense. The more free, the more need this.
Punctuality is not necessarily to get trust from customers, but will lose credit not punctual. If designers can not violate the rules of work attitude, will surely can be extended more the possibility of their work.

Exercise is obligatory

    To maintain a high level of precision design for long, without a good body may be hard to do.
Like eating “creative vitamin”, do necessary physical exercise is essential of every week. Maintain physical state is also a kind of work, need to pay attention to a healthy management.

To deal with different things

    For mentally- consuming designers, enough revenue to stimulate some new ideas, new knowledge, is very important.
Be open to new things, or things she had never seen before, had never went, must personally experience. Feel something on the spot, will be in the form of unexpected ideas and thinking methods in the future.
Chat with different people, perhaps more wonderful than read controlled book.     They can let you see other wonderful life versions, and you never had thought of.

Dress is a part of the design

    Appropriate dress is on behalf of respect for others, can increase people’s favor. People who do not understand this feeling, may be not good designer… Even oneself all bad design, can bring good design for the customer?
In accordance with the time, occasion, and his position, wear oneself be fond of style, the taste is not also belongs to the category of creative design?

With word and text power to impress people

    General designers are excellent to make graphic images convey, but is often not good at words.
If the power of design cannot be well conveyed to the average person, but to the industry get to understand each other, is really difficult to identity design personnel of the masses. Only seeing them as a group of interesting heterogeneous. If not with clear, concise words, explain the power of design, and the concept of hidden in the bottom, will not be able to move people’s heart.
Especially in the design, the work behind the form of design philosophy and aesthetics, has touching elements. If the public works “brilliant”, should be feeling implied the truth. If words can convey more clearly, the audience should be able to produce more intense sympathetic chord.
