Best Design Advice

I don’t remember where precisely I read this, but I do know it really changed the way I approach designs. “Imagine every element of your design will be view alone as an individual item; design as such.”

When it comes to web design, I’ll be the first to admit that it was hard for me to get into it. I saw good design and I knew what it looked like, but I didn’t quite understand how to emulate or produce it. It was really only after reading that advice that it dawned on me how to approach and really improve my designs. I have a process I go through with each design – general idea, wireframe, filling it in, adding the details and I think it was really the last part that was lacking. After really examining each element as its own entity, I feel my designs have grown stronger and just generally better.
