Leaving aside the innate talent that one can have to illustrate, CAD Design, even thinks and decide, to be a good graphic designer, many qualities are required that we can summarize in the following, which are what we consider basic and most important.
A good graphic designer must adapt to each project, we cannot force the project to be modified due to our adaptation and knowledge limitations. Because each application and needs are unique, versatility is also a necessary quality to adjust and choose the appropriate style.
Many of them could be transferred to almost all professions and design professionals:
It all starts with a touch of madness thanks to the imagination. Seeing things differently marks a good start as fads and trends are traps for creativity.
Passion is essential to progress and allows you to maintain your technique while you can learn different ones.
Being precise, having technique, precision, is of the utmost importance and, even though it is invisible, it is not palpable for everyone to see, there is a rule, a norm, in all compositions of a visual nature.
It takes investment in time, constantly practicing, searching, observing, and not forgetting that it is a job, a business that in the end has to find profitability.
This doesn’t always work at first. Perseverance is needed, because, with time, anything is possible.
It is also thanks to curiosity, which will feed our general knowledge and we will absorb all styles and trends, with which we reach the goals that seemed more distant and impossible.
As in any sporting discipline, perseverance is a priority for the ascent to the top, everyone has their rhythm, but you have to maintain it.
You cannot design without an objective, if we plan, we sketch the result, this will allow us to deviate as little as possible from our final objective. There are many distractions, a lot of information around us. But this does not have to distance us or force us to change the chosen direction. Sometimes the possibilities for a CAD Design are practically endless, if we do not delimit, we will never reach a single optimal result
Copying does not make you a great Prototype Designer, you must innovate to make a unique CAD Design. You have to take the initiative and decide the next trends with courage and poise, bearing in mind that all innovation at the beginning is always rejected by the environment. Because an innovative idea will only be seen by its creator and others will hardly understand it at first.
It takes a lot of open-mindedness, empathy, to expose our ideas to the world since there are different cultures, thoughts, and we have to reach most of all these singularities with our designs.
Finally, simplicity communicates much better than complexity. We must ensure that the least number of elements appear in the designs, know how to eliminate superfluous or even useless ones to create the most direct and key message with our CAD Design.
