Tips for Students

So, as a graphic design student, I find myself pretty busy when it comes to completing my projects and I wanted to give some tips to other students.

  • Go to class

This one should be obvious. If you don’t go to class, then you won’t know what work you need to do or any deadlines you need to meet. Failing a class can really put a damper on your college plans.

  • Write down deadlines/due date

Something that really helps me is writing down the dates when projects are due, and putting a sticky note widget on my desktop so I can see it everyday and not forget. Writing it down on a real sticky note too works just as well.

  • Set aside time to work

Projects can take hours to finish so it’s very important that you set aside time to focus on working. There’s a lot of distractions like Facebook or Twitter, but try your best not to give into the pressure.  Once you get into the work mode, it goes really easy because being creative makes time fly!
