I enjoyed his speech with his powerpoint slides. I could feel his passion and desire from his work he showed at his speech. He said that we have to dedicate to our craft day and night to be successful. and we have to want to work that nobody wants work. It is so reasonable. There is no answer in art, especially in design. So I totally agree with his opinion that we have to dedicate to our craft constantly. I lacked tenacity when working on something. So his saying was meaningful to me.
Another saying that impressed me was that “If you are not confident yourself, nobody believes you.” Before showing our work to somebody, the work should satisfy ourselves. It is the way of professional field. I listened carefully and will apply it when I do design work, and many other works also.
There were much contents that I knew before, but did not practice when designing something. It’s good chance to realize once again that the little difference can change whole concept and make big difference. I liked the example of before and after applying the 4 basic principles shown on the text book. It made clear difference and showed how effective the principles are.
