The notorious phrase: “Jack of all trades, master of none” in the design community hasn’t stopped our next GSA graduate from exploring and using different mediums when approaching communication design.
“This project/brief started off as an exploration of intellect and instinct in relation to creative processes. I was required to act instinctively, undertaking a series of mini projects which should lead from one to the next that would push and stretch my own approaches to generating ideas. I was asked to document my process as I move along and reflect on any issues or interesting questions that arises. As I embarked on my research, a widely used and heard phrase surfaced: “Trust your instincts.” There were, however, many who felt that this statement was fallacious. The question after; are first instincts generally bad? Each mini project presented was “hand made” (no digital imaging or photo manipulation) photographed and documented. These projects were some that I never thought would succeed as outcomes or even thought possible to execute. Acting instinctively, fighting the doubts I had along the way I moved from one project to the next, and as I reflected through each project, I concluded; Instincts do not push creativity. Doubt does.”
