I recently wrote a range of design tips for graduates for Digital Arts Magazine. I wanted to give them some simple tips which help me every day that would be a little different to the usual approach every job with the same enthusiasm and always question the brief. Unfortunately they only used one of the four tips I sent them, but it was nice just to be given the opportunity.
My favorite marker pen is the Berol black fine felt tip.
It is great for doing good quick scamps and picks up well in our scanner.
Stick everything on the wall. It really helps you plan out a project as well as jazzing up your wall.
If you decided to follow my Wall tip, may I recommend 3M Scotch Magic Tape Matt Finish (the green one) for slightly dusty or chalky walls. However if you’re lucky enough to be sticking onto glass, then I would go for the sustainable option of the 3M Scotch Removable Magic Tape (the blue one)
Little big tip~
Always push to keep the big ideas scribbled on the small bits
of paper in the first stage of a project. One day you will get them through and then you too might end up having to work out how to get a 3D Cannon ball lodged in a pub sign.
