The Importance of Having a Sense of Connection Within the Design Community

A “sense of connection” in essence is what everyone is always looking for. And we are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to be living and being part of an era of technology, where everything and anything is at a simple click. A connection with reality, people, and our surroundings is what maintains us on our feet.
“They will learn from their own mistakes!” Now tell me how many of you have heard this phrase over and over before? And Why? What is the purpose? This phrase no longer applies to any of us unless we allow it to mean anything. We live in a generation where there is help all around us, whether we are looking for it or not. We are no longer constrained to any chair. And that is why it is important for us, those individuals pursuing a career in the field of Graphic Design, to have a strong sense of connection within design. What we are learning and experiencing in this moment within graphic design will just become a bigger sensation as we go on further. And maintaining tides with those who have been in our shoes and are now on the top will only help us reach our star sooner. Graphic design is like a tree, always growing and always changing. If you ignore it you will never see it coming. Maintaining a relationship within the design community will allow you to see yourself grow and see others do it as well within the field of design. Lets continue watering the tree!!!
