'10' don'ts for Real designers
Not to copy other's creative work, under no circumstances.
Not to rely completely on computer technology, it is a tool only and cannot substitute you creativity. Remember, you are a designer, not a computer graphic editor.
Be a creator and not a fashion-follower because a trendy style today would become an out-dated one tomorrow.
Trying ten design fields simultaneously but badly is worse than concentrating on one field and master it.
Be professional and don't release any artworks that you don't like.
To not lower the quality in view of low business value of an artwork.
To not criticise other's artwork merely on the ground of one's preferences nor just replicate comment from someone.
To not create artwork without any ground. Great works usually come from the understanding of the culture, history and philosophy.
Keep yourself modest to people, whether you're a novice or a master.
Always believe that design can save your country and change the world.
and so that concludes if you are a 'real' designer or not.
