平面设计职业|平面设计师的生活

GRAPHIC DESIGN MAJOR & CAREER | Life as a Graphic Designer!

*设计师的平面设计指南*
嗨 欢迎回来
Hello, welcome back to my channel!
本期我会介绍
In today’s video I’m gonna be going over everything you need to know about graphic design
关于平面设计你要知道的一切
本期我会说到平面设计究竟是什么
so this video I’m gonna be going over exactly what graphic design is
如果你去学校学平面设计
what school and school work would look like if you’re going to school for graphic design
学校和课业是什么样的
还有毕业之后是怎样的生活
and also what life after college looks like
我在Cilla当正式平面设计师三四年了
I’ve been a graphic designer for Cilla three or four years now officially
这是我的经历
this is my experience then hopefully I could help show you what to expect after all
希望让你们看到毕业后是什么样子
先来回顾下我决定成为平面设计师的背景
so to start I’m going to go over a little bit of a background on why I decides becomes a graphic designer
斯蒂芬妮问我为什么想当一名平面设计师
Stephanie asked what made you want to become a graphic designer?
我基本上从小就喜欢艺术创作
And basically ever since I was small I love doing art like everyone knew that
所有人都觉得我很有创造力
我总在画画
I was just very much creative person I was always drawing things
常常制作东西 比如把小册子摆放在一起
I was always making stuff like putting little booklets together
或想出……不知道 我就是很有艺术天赋
and like coming up with I don’t know I was just very artistic and I’m going to see that
我后来发现了这点
因为喜欢艺术 我问爸爸
I asked my dad because I really liked art I was like what can I do that’s related to art
什么工作和艺术相关
又可以有稳定的收入
that will allow me to have a steady income and my dad suggested
爸爸建议我学平面设计
graphic design and he told me a little bit about what it is
他告诉我平面设计是什么
我觉得这个职业太完美了
and I just thought it was perfect so what exactly is graphic design
那么平面设计到底是什么呢
平面设计师是一个创意问题解决者
when you’re a graphic designer you are a creative problem solver and your job
你的工作是为他人需求寻找创意解决方案
is finding a creative solution for someone else’s needs
现实中的平面设计有包装 电影海报
an example of graphic design out in the real world is like packaging movie poster design
餐厅菜单 网络图形设计之类
restaurant menus graphics on the web stuff like that
基本上包括
世界上所有需要创造性思维和过程的事
was made by a graphic designer for an art director so going
那就是平面设计师或者艺术总监所做的
that was made by a graphic designer or an art director
来看这些问题
我该从事平面设计吗?
它到底做什么
so going over the questions about like showing a graphic design what exactly is it I’m thinking about doing it
我正考虑从事平面设计
梅雷迪斯问你怎样设计字体和图形
Meredith asked how do you do your lettering and designing?
我稍后会回答这个问题
I am going to go over that later but the part I’m going to answer in this section right now is
我现在这部分要回答的是
你建议当一名平面设计师吗
would you recommend being a graphic designer? Honestly
其实这完全取决于你自己
that is totally up to you you have to be the judge of that
你必须自己做判断
你是否有创造力
if you’re creative and you know art is your passion and you feel like you have an eye for design
明白艺术是你的热情所在
并觉得自己对艺术有鉴赏力
我很小就意识到
I knew all of this ever since I was very small lots of people have different tastes
人们的志趣不尽相同
但你得忠于自己
but you have to be true to yourself and know like if you really like it then you should pursue it
并且明白如果真心喜欢 就该去追求
进入学校我们会发现
going to school we saw a lot of people go into graphic design and then drop out
很多人一开始学习平面设计 后来退出了
如果你想开T恤公司 别学平面设计
Do not take graphic design if you want to start your own t-shirt companies but we’re half of the people
一半说自己想开T恤公司的人后来退出了
that would they were like I want to start my own t-shirt company then dropped out
它远不止是创立自己的T恤公司
it’s so much more than just starting your own t-shirt company you’re going to be
要学字体 要学版式
learning about type you’re going to be learning about layout it’s more intense than just learning about the programs
它非常严肃 不只是学如何使用电脑程序
而是要学习所有与设计有关的东西
on how to use it it’s learning about everything that goes into design
我喜欢做平面设计 是因为它有挑战性
I personally like doing it because it’s a challenge
维多利亚·珍妮特说
Victoria Janet said this is amazing cause it just took my first graphic design course and immediately was like yup this is what I love
太神奇了 我刚去上了第一堂平面设计课
立刻发现 呀 这就是我喜欢的
它基本上确定了你是否想做这个
and basically it kind of solidifies whether or not you want to do it it’s you just know
你就是知道
你会有感觉
试着去找些课程
you know try looking up classes or looking up graphic design work online
或者看看网上的平面设计工作
也有助于你了解平面设计到底是什么
that’ll also help you get a feel for what exactly it is so now we are
现在来看看对平面设计的误解
going to be going over misconceptions I saw a lot of comments online saying
网上有很多评论说
如果我想当平面设计师
like if I want to be a graphic designer should I learn to code as soon as possible?
该尽快学会写代码吗?
你读大学之前上过平面设计的课吗?
Did you take graphic design classes before starting college?
不会画画还能申请平面设计专业吗?
If I don’t know how to draw can I still apply for a graphic design major?
我记得刚开始的时候我也很害怕
I remember I was so scared when I first started going but then you have to think of it this way.
但你得这么想
它会那么可怕
是因为不了解会发生什么 需要什么能力
It’s scary because you don’t know what’s to come and what it entails
你是去那儿学习的
but you’re going there to learn like you’re not expected to go into a graphic design course knowing everything
没人指望你学平面设计课的时候什么都懂
因为大家和你一样
because everyone is in the same boat as you no one knows what’s going on.
没人知道接下来学什么
可能有少数人高中的时候上过平面设计课
A few people may have taken like graphic design classes in high school.
但也只会在最开始有一点区别
but that’s just like very beginning if anything and it’s not even that much experience
也不是多大的经验
他们可能懂怎么操作电脑程序
like they may know how to work the programs but there’s so much more to it but no one in the fundamental classes has learned
但还有很多东西 基础班的人都没有学过
你会学得很慢
learned yet and you’re going to be taking it very slow
如果对平面设计一无所知
但你知道这是你想做的事
If you don’t know anything about graphic design but you know that’s something you want to do
因为你热爱创作
because you love creating then don’t even worry about it. You don’t need any experience.
不用担心 你不需要任何经验
他们差不多什么都会教 放心
They will help you with literally everything. It’s fine.
现在来聊聊学业
So now we’re going to talk about school work.
尼卡·加布里埃尔问
Nikka Gabrielle asked hi Jasmine! where’d you go for college?
嗨 Jasmine 你在哪读的大学
你是在iPad上设计字体
Do you do your lettering on your iPad or do you own a drawing tablet?
还是用自己的绘图板?
我稍后会回答那个问题
I’m going to get to that whole thing afterwards but right now I’m going to talk about school. Different art schools teach different things.
但现在我要聊聊学校
不同艺术学校教的东西也不一样
我读的是艺术学院
I went to the Art Institute and this is basically what my experience was like.
我的经验基本上是
从基础课上起 逐渐涉及更多高级课程
You start off with basic classes. The classes get more involved in advance as you go along like
要学排版 印刷 包装设计 品牌推广
we took reds in layout, typography, package design, branding
比如商标和企业形象之类的东西
which is like logos and corporate identity type things,
高级插画课 Illustrator软件我基本是在那学的
advanced illustration which is basically like where I learned illustrator.
这些是你要学的课
Those are the types of classes that you’ll learn also some things to know about schoolwork is
关于学业你还要知道
课题会花很长时间
the projects will take a long time. Be prepared to pull a lot of all nighters.
要准备熬很多个通宵
即使外行的人会说
Even though people from the outside are like oh you’re going to school for graphic design it’s not even that hard like it is hard!
噢 你要去学平面设计了
那不是很辛苦
它真的很辛苦
拿数学来说 数学很难
any example of math math is very difficult but at the end of the day
但最后总有个解法
只有一个答案是对的
you have one final solution there’s one answer that works.
平面设计不一样
Graphic design is different there’s so many different options for one thing
一个东西有很多不同的选择
它要花很多时间 不断思考
like takes a long time and it takes a lot of thought if you’re really passionate about it but basically
如果你真有热情的话
projects will take a very long time
但基本上 课题都要花很长时间
平面设计还有很重要的一部分是接受批评
also such a big part of graphic design is learning to take critics
我有个老师 汉森先生
I have this one teacher Mr. Hanson I remember
我记得 当过军人的他会走出来
stories of like ex-military would show up and put their work on the wall for everyone to see
把学生的作业挂墙上让每个人看
他会直接说因为什么原因 这个有问题
and he would straight-up be like this is wrong because of it why did you do this because this and this and
你为什么这么设计 因为这个那个
学生都会哭着出来
he would send them out crying basically you’re going to graphic design
说实在的你打算学平面设计的话
你要学会接受批评 我怎么才能做得更好
and you need to learn how to take critics.
那才是批评的根本意义
what can I do to make this better that’s basically what critics are. Don’t ever take critics personally.
别把批评当作对个人的攻击
那对改进工作没有好处
It don’t really help improve your work because if not it’ll just always say the same and you will not improve
因为如果不那样的话 就不会改变
你就不会有提升
我有几个朋友不听老师的建议
I have few friends that they’re not listen to the teachers
老师说应该改动这里 因为什么原因
the teachers would tell them you should change this because of this and then they would think that they know more than the teachers
他们认为自己懂得比老师多
或者他们感到很受伤 就会开始哭
or they were like hurt from it and they would start crying.
他们现在进入社会了 没有从事所学专业
They’re out in the world right now and not doing what they went to school for.
所以如果你要从事平面设计
So if you’re going to graphic design, be prepared to have some thick skin or grow some thick skin
要有厚脸皮 或者要变得厚脸皮
因为起初听到这些批评会很难受
because it will be hard at first to like hear all these critics.
难受也没用
It don’t make things a lot easier and you will grow so much more as a designer.
作为设计师你会成长很多
现在来聊聊平面设计技能和灵感的培养
Now we’re going to talk about like building skills and motivation in graphic design.
劳伦问 平面设计师想要提升
Lauren asked what are the best resources for aspiring graphic designers?
有哪些好资源
可以从Behance和DyeLine这样的网站寻找灵感
Inspiration like websites like B hands and dye lines
DyeLine网站是我的校友创立的
and the dyelines was started by one of the alumni at my school that
现在它是最大的
I went to like now it’s like one of the biggest you see the biggest I think it’s the biggest package design website.
你认为是最大吗?
我认为是最大的包装设计网站之一
是获得包装设计灵感的好地方
and yeah that’s a great site for package design inspiration also just design inspiration
也能获得设计灵感
还有Dribbble网站
and also dribble with 3ds.
找到激发你灵感的东西
Find what inspires you and then find the supplies in order to do the things that inspire you.
发掘激发你灵感的条件
接下来聊聊实习
Next we’ll be talking about internships.
维多利亚·珍妮特询问
Victoria Jannet asked tips on when is a good time to apply for internships
关于申请实习的合适时间
以及获得实习的建议
and tips on getting an internship. What worked for you?
哪些建议曾对你有帮助
我认为申请实习的最好时机是在校的时候
I see the best time to get an internship is when you’re in school
可能在美好校园时光的大二到大四去实习
maybe like midway to like towards the end of the good times to get an internship?
为了得到实习 你需要有一份作品集
So in order to get an internship you need a portfolio.
当你还是学生的时候 不要太有压力
Don’t stress out about this way too much while you’re in school.
不要担心自己还在读书
Don’t worry about it to like midway through school like yourself
因为你做的基础性课题
because like the fundamental projects that you do are most likely not going to end up as portfolio pieces.
很可能最后不会放进作品集
但做课题的时候要把作品集记在心里
But keep your portfolio in mind as you’re doing projects
因为你永远不会知道
because you never know later on what can turn into a portfolio piece.
后来最终什么会成为你的作品
他们知道你没经验
They know that you don’t have any experience so as long as you have good school projects that
所以只要你有很好的学校课题
来展示你的设计风格和你的能力
show your design style and what you can do that’s what matters.
那才是关键
在学校里保持优秀也是很好的动力
It’s also a very good motivation to keep doing well in school.
为了获得实习 你还需要一份简历
Also, in order to get an internship you need a resume.
编辑一份漂亮的简历 不要过度设计
Put together a nice one. It doesn’t have to be like superly over-designed.
即使是申请我现在这份工作
Even to get my job that I have right now. I didn’t have a crazy resume.
我的简历也没有太夸张
我只是拿了一份设计得体的简历
I just had like a nicely designed resume that was pleasing to the eye and that’s all you need I think.
看起来舒服就行
我认为这样就够了
回过来说我为什么非常建议你去实习
Also, going back to like why I really suggest getting an internship.
因为他们让你知道
They make you realize what type of company you would like to work for.
你喜欢为什么样的公司工作
我本科毕业之前只做过一份实习
I only took one internship before I graduated with my bachelor’s degree.
我为一家叫Vizio的公司工作
I worked for this company called Vizio.
他们生产电视之类的东西
They make all those TVs and stuff like that and it was a really good company
这是家非常好的公司
但工作真的极其无聊
but it was really extremely boring
不是因为公司很大
not because it was a big company but because their branding was so specific
而是因为公司品牌太过具体
我在一遍遍重复做同样的事情 毫不夸张
that I was literally doing the same thing over and over and over.
每当我试图做点有创意的事
Every time I would try to like do something very creative, they’ll feel like this is cool but just you know
他们就觉得这很酷但是
只要把红字放在渐变背景上就行了
put red text on gradient background and you’re good to go and I was like, really?
你最好这样做 我心想 真的吗
非常无聊 即使我喜欢这个公司
It was just really boring and even though I love the company I did not see myself working there.
我在那里感觉不到工作热情
但现在我在Taco Bell总部工作
Right now I am work at Taco Bell headquarters.
我喜欢这家公司
I love it because their projects are so versatile I’m never doing the same thing
因为公司项目很多样
我不会每天一遍遍做同样的事情
都是新的事
over and over and over every single day is something new
这期视频我说到了大公司
and in this vedio I talk about our big company but their branding is different
但大公司品牌推广不一样
参加实习
so take internships and things that you think you might like to d and then you could get a feel of what the work environment is like.
做你觉得自己可能喜欢的事
你就能感受到工作环境是怎样的
下一次面试的时候
You could go to your next interviews and you’re like what is the work environment like here
你就会问
这里的工作环境怎么样
我能在工作中得到什么
and what can I expect in the job and I highly suggest doing it.
我强烈推荐去实习
大多数时候如果他们很喜欢你
Most of the time if they really like you they will offer you a job afterwards.
会在之后为你提供工作
毕业前为了专注于学业
Before I graduated I decided to quit the internship just to like focus on schoolwork
我决定辞掉实习工作
我告知了他们
他们说我们很喜欢你在这里的工作
So I told them that and he was like you know we really like your work here we like your work ethic.
欣赏你的职业道德
如果你想要一份工作
If you want a job I definitely be willing to take you on here
这里非常欢迎你
如果你不想留下来
and if not I’m willing to write you a letter of recommendation to give to anybody.
我愿意为你写推荐信
大多数时候 如果他们真想要你
Yeah, so most of the time if they really like you they’ll hire you on full-time afterwards.
不久就会全职聘用你
我自己不是实习转正
I didn’t personally do that but my friend Matt did that. He worked at a corp and they gave him a really good starting pay
但我朋友马特是
他在一家公司工作
公司给了他很不错的起薪
因为不想让他走
because they didn’t want to lose him. So either way it just is a very helpful experience.
无论哪种方式 实习都是很有用的经历
现在我要聊聊工作和事业
So now I’m gonna be talking about work and career, what life is like after college.
毕业后的生活是什么样的
杰西卡问实习的事情以及
Jessica asked internships and what it’s like working for a big company vs freelancing?
在大公司工作和
当自由设计师分别是什么感觉
我说过实习了
I talked about internships so freelancing vs working for a big company.
那来比较下当自由设计师
和在大公司工作
当你是自由职业时
When you freelance, you definitely have like a lot of freedom you don’t really have a set schedule.
你当然有很多自由
除了你所做的项目和截止日期
没有很固定的日程安排
besides the progress that you take on and those deadlines.
但如果你不懂如何建立人脉的话
But it can also be very hard to find clients at times if you don’t know how to network well.
有时也很难找到客户
我不是最擅于交际的人
I’m not the best at networking. Leo is very good at networking. He gets freelance jobs all the time.
利奥很擅长建立人脉
他每次都能找到自由设计工作
如果你擅长与人交往 自己找工作
So if you’re good at like connecting with people and finding work then go ahead
那就全力以赴吧
因为为了取得成功 拥有稳定的收入
because like in order to be successful and have steady income you need to like really put yourself out there
你要非常努力
非常勤奋以及很有上进心
and be very hard-working and just be very self-motivated.
还有 和客户一起工作可能很难应付
Also, working with clients can be tough and sometimes unreliable.
有时还很不靠谱
客户有时可能会占你便宜
Clients can sometimes take advantage of you and not the reality of doing graphic design out the real world.
这就是做平面设计的社会现实
我不是很建议和朋友一起工作
I don’t really suggest working with friends because I had some friends like they didn’t pay me back.
因为我有些朋友没付我钱 就走掉了
我在想 我的钱呢
cousins away they’re just like where’s this money for all of the work I put in for you I know we’re friends.
我的作品呢 我为你做事
我知道我们是朋友 但那又怎样
那就有点尴尬了
So like what the heck? So it’s like a little bit awkward.
但如果你擅长自由设计
But freelancing if you’re good at it go for it.
就放手去做吧
如果你为大公司工作 通常是朝九晚五
So working for a big company you usually work 9 to 5, 40 hours a week.
一周工作40小时
好处是收入很稳定
The upside is you have steady income so if you have steady cash flow coming in,
于是你会有稳定的现金流
你能支付所有账单 完全不用操心
you can pay all your bills. You don’t have to worry about that. You’re good to go.
可以很顺利
如果符合你的兴趣
You will like it depending on your taste and if the company you are working for is your style.
并且你工作的公司是你喜欢的
你会喜欢为大公司工作
老实说 在找到现在这份工作之前
Honestly I bounced around a lot before I found the job that I’m at right now.
我换过很多工作
起初我在一家叫Snell Our Society的公司工作
First I worked for this company called Snell our society and I loved the company
我很喜欢那家公司
但公司太小了 我的薪水也很低
but it was just so small and I was not getting good pay at all.
工资又少又不稳定
It was very random and bars payments and just like me getting paid right now
就像是 我马上要拿到报酬了吗
我发挥作用了吗
我真的很喜欢那里的工作人员
am I coming in I really really loved it people working there. It just was not very reliable.
只是公司不太靠谱
虽然我希望它是的
Even though I wish it was because that was such a fun job.
因为那是一份很有趣的工作
在那之后 我到洛杉矶的一家小公司工作
After that I ended up working at this small little company in LA.
那是我人生中最糟糕的经历
and it was like the worst experience of my life.
他们为人极其阴暗
They were like the shadiest people. I won’t say which race they are
我不会说出他们的种族
但他们只聘用那个特定种族的人
But they only hire people of that specific race.
我 另外一位设计师和
Me and the other designer and a social media person who also came from nail art Society.
一位也来自美甲艺术协会的社会媒体人士
我们三个都在狭小拥挤
All three of us worked in this small cramped tiny little room with no sunlight.
没有阳光的房间里工作
其他与他们同种族的人
The rest of the people of the same race worked in this really big bright room
在宽敞明亮的房间里工作
房间里有很多窗户 开着空调
with lots of windows and air conditioning that worked and we were just on this other little room
我们在另一个小房间里工作
我想可能设计师是这样的
and I was like maybe this is like the designer.
但后来 他们聘用了另一个人来当设计师
But come later another person that they hired on as a designer.
她没有经验 不知道自己在做什么
She had no experience. She did not know what she was doing.
她本该和同等级的人在这个房间工作
She was supposed to work in the room with all the great of people
但因为她的种族
but since she was of that race, she ended up going in the other room
她最后去了另一个房间
我坐在没有阳光的房间里
and then I was sitting in the other room with no sunlight and getting crap pay.
拿着糟糕的薪水
我们就坐那儿想
Yeah, we were just sitting in there like what the heck are we doing
我们到底在干什么
他们会说
and they would say if you work harder and you go faster
你工作再努力点 手脚再麻利点
我们会给你涨50美分工资
then we will give you maybe like a 50-cent raise.
我心想你在逗我吗
I was like are you kidding me right now!
这家公司真的很差劲
It was it was just not good and every time we would try to ask for a better pay, they were like we don’t have the budget
每次我们申请加薪
他们就会说我们没有预算
但之后去他们的Ins上却会看到
but then we would go on their Instagram and see an important buying Prada Bags over the weekend
他们周末都在买Prada包
我心想 你在逗我吗
it’s just like are you kidding me this is this is not a good job the
这不是一份好工作
在那之后我还去了一家公司工作
The other job I had after that was also for a company.
它是一家很小的亚洲公司
It was a small issue company. I was like this is a really cute company.
我觉得公司的风格很可爱
会做得很开心
I think I would have fun with this style so I ended up going there.
所以最后去那工作了
但公司很奇怪
But it was so weird because after a couple months, one of the sisters was in India.
几个月后 姐妹中有一个人在印度
所以她住在那边
so she lived over there and the other sister lived here and worked at actual company.
另一个妹妹住在这里
在公司里面工作
但在印度的姐姐喜欢什么都管
But the sister in India she just loved to micromanage.
她就说 嘿 让我们视频群聊吧
She started like hey you know what, let’s Google Hangouts and we can talk about this.
那我们就可以讨论这个问题 我当然说好
So I was like sure. So we started off like maybe once a week and then slowly increase like
起初我们可能一周一次电话
后来慢慢增加到
我每天都在很奇怪的时间打网络电话
every single day I was skyping at weird weird weird times
我得比其他人早到一两个小时
like I had to come in like an hour or two earlier than everybody else just so that this sister from India
就为了这个在印度的姐姐
可以对我做的每件小事管头管脚
她基本上就坐在那儿 看着我的屏幕说
把那个移到左边
moved that over to the left. Okay now moved that over to the right. Make the font bigger. Actually you know what, do it the way you had before.
好了 现在移到右边
把字调大点
其实我觉得还是按你之前做吧
还是改一下吧
在她睡觉之前 我们会在那坐四五个小时
Actually change it and we would sit there for like four or five hours
体验真的很糟糕
before she went to bed and it was just the worst experience. I fucking hated my job there.
我非常讨厌那里的工作
在那工作了几个月之后
After a few months of doing that, Leo actually worked at Taco Bell headquarters before me
利奥其实比我先进Taco Bell总部
他提到公司正在找新的平面设计师
and he mentioned that they were looking for a new graphic designer and they hired me.
然后他们聘用了我
我超爱现在的公司
It’s a company that I really love. I’m doing something different every single day.
我每天都在做不一样的事
我的主要工作是帮着做PPT
The main job that I was brought on for is to help with PowerPoint which sounds boring
工作听起来很无聊 但实际上很棒
我应聘这份工作
but it’s actually like so cool I wanted this job because I get to travel about like three to four times a year.
是因为一年可以旅行三到四次
我在Taco Bell帮忙处理bigDAWGS商店的业务
and I help out with the big dawgs a Taco Bell they give presentations to the franchisees
公司给经营商店的加盟商做讲座
基本上我 以及我的密切合作伙伴布雷德
who run the stores and basically me and Brad who I work closely with me around all
负责所有的舞台设计
all of the staging all that stuff and we come up with the designs for the presentations
我们为他们给加盟商的讲座提出设计方案
我觉得迄今为止
that they give to franchisees and it’s like that’s my all-time favorite thing about working where I work
这家公司的工作是我最喜欢的
那是我最喜欢的部分
So that’s what I ended up like I do like other aspects of it
我也很喜欢公司的其他方面
我想说的是我可以做不一样的事
what I like about talking about is that I can work on different things and they do packaging so if I ever want
他们做包装设计
如果我想做包装设计 就可以对他们说
want to do packaging or get some cake I want to work on packaging and so throw me on the package design project
嘿我想做包装设计
包装设计项目给我做吧
我不断摸索才找到现在这份工作
It took a lot of trial and error to get where I am now
但只要你找到一家很喜欢的公司
but as long as you find a company that you really like. It’ll all be worth it in the end.
最终一切都是值得的
斯凯·柯林斯问
Skye Collins asked how experienced do you have to be to get a good job in graphic design?
要多有经验才能找到好的平面设计工作
其实我们已经谈到这个问题了
Actually kind of touched on this already but it depends on the company
我认为这要看公司
要看你能为公司做出什么贡献
and it depends on what you can provide to the company I guess and the job that I had
我在洛杉矶找到工作的时候
in LA there was like a girl who didn’t really have much experience but then also they were not the best company.
是个没什么经验的女孩
但公司也不是最好的
我现在的这个职位招收本科毕业生
And the job I’m at right now they hired straight out of school with a bachelor’s degree.
你的实习或别的某些经历确实会有用
It does help if you’ve had an internship or some sort of experience like if you do freelance
如果你在进入社会之前
兼职做自由设计师
on the side before you get out that shows that you’re able to like work with people.
那能证明你的合作能力
我建议你可以去实习
The suggestion that you can do it really helps if you have a degree.
学位很有用
我想最差也要拿个大专证书
The lowest one I believe is associates but it’s even better if you have a bachelor’s degree.
但有个本科学位更好一些
不是所有公司都把大专学位当回事
Not all companies will take associate degrees seriously
同时如果你有学士学位
and also if you have a bachelor’s degree you’re more likely to get better pay.
你更有机会获得高薪
劳伦问 比起当自由设计师
Lauren asked do you prefer working with a company over freelancing?
你更喜欢在公司工作吗
由于我找到了非常喜欢的公司
I love working with a company now that I found one that I really really like.
我现在很喜欢在公司工作
我唯一不喜欢的一点是
The only thing that I don’t like is going to work from 9 to 5. It can be draining at times
要朝九晚五上班
有时可能让人精疲力尽
但只要你做的事对你来说很值
but as long as the work you’re doing is rewarding to you that’s all that matters and I really like the work that I do
那才是最重要的
我很喜欢我的工作
现在我要聊聊
so now I’m going to be talking about what a day at work would look like as a graphic designer.
平面设计师的工作日常是什么样的
过去几年我所有的平面设计工作
this has been basically true for every single graphic design job I’ve had in last few years.
基本都是这样的
我去上班
I get into work usually still have like meetings and talk about like the projects that are going on and who
通常还要开会讨论项目进度和人员分工
有时候会有人来分配任务 那就是薇薇安
who needs to do what sometimes you’ll have someone who assigns the project at
她会到处搜集人们的设计需求
at this job her name is Vivian and she will just go around picking people’s requests for design work and
然后把任务分给不同的设计师
and she’ll distribute them through the different designers you’ll try to bring some ideas for the project you’ll
你要头脑风暴项目点子
你会想一些初步的概念
you’ll come up with a few initial concepts and before you send out those concepts go try to talk to other people
在发出这些概念之前 试着问问其他人说
你觉得这个怎么样
people like hey what do you think of this how can I make it better which ideas are going in the right direction so
我怎么优化它
哪些创意朝着正确的方向发展
和其他人聊过后
so after you talk to those people you’ll have to get initial concepts and you’ll send them off for
你会整合初步的概念
然后再发送出去
我会提交给薇薇安
for me I hand them to the music and she’ll go into a meeting after that you’ll get back their feedback and
她们会开会然后反馈给你
你就知道接下去怎么做
and you’ll know where to go from there sometimes they love it sometimes they love
有时候他们喜欢你的创意
有时候他们欣赏一部分
sometimes they love half of the thing to do and sometimes they’re like actually I don’t want to do this what’s
有时他们会说其实我没兴趣
你完全搞错了方向
有时项目很简单
what’s going to completely different direction sometimes projects can be really easy and they’re like perfect it’s great send
他们会说 完美 太棒了 发出去吧
有时你会在一个项目上研究好几周的条款
send it off and other times you will be doing provisions for weeks on the same project
你很想给他们的脸上来一拳
project and you’ll want to punch the people in the face they’re just like make up your frickin mind I’ve been working on this project for a whole
他们会说 收起你该死的想法
这项目我已经做了一整个月了
有时你做自己很喜欢的事
month now sometimes you’ll get to work on things that you really like and you’ll get to go crazy with like
你对工作的方式着迷
可以做任何想做的事
like your style and do whatever you want the clients are like yeah I don’t know anything that’s why we have you designers and other
客户说 我什么都不知道
这就是我请你们的目的
有时客户说
other times the clients are like I feel like I have the graphic design knowledge I just don’t have a computer know how to work it so
我觉得我懂平面设计
我只是不会电脑绘图
好吧 他们是最终付钱的人
so ultimately they are the ones paying you and they want something a specific way so sometimes
他们想要某种特定的效果
那有时你就只要把成品给他们
sometimes you just have to give it to them just don’t put it in your portfolio are you trying
只是别把它放在作品集里
我尽量说实话
trying to be honest – honestly I really like graphic design and I think it’s very very fun so I hope I’m
老实说我很喜欢平面设计
我认为它很有趣
所以我不希望别把人吓跑 或者吓到人
I’m not scaring people away or scaring people because I’m just trying to show you what it’s really like in the real world
我尽量告诉你们
现实中平面设计的样子
因为有人不了解 所以我努力揭示这一面
world because some people don’t know so I’m just trying to open up that side of it because it’s not just like playing on the computer
平面设计不只是每天玩电脑而已
凯伦问 请描述你的创意过程以及
computer every day Karen asked me describe your creative process / how you approach
你的原始创意是如何形成的
/ how you approach your initial idea generation you often find a difficult trendle verbal information into
你会常常觉得将文字信息
转化为视觉元素很难吗
爱你 一个未来的小设计师
into a visual element love a little graphic designer could be if
如果你们不知道的话
if you didn’t really know Karen I mentioned her in a few vlogs she is Leo’s little sister and she is now going to school
我在几个视频博客里提过凯伦
她是利奥的妹妹
就要去学平面设计了
school for graphic design but initial idea generation when your school teachers
原始创意的形成
在学校里
老师总会建议马上想很多个大概想法
teachers will always suggest just sketching everything out right off the bat just sketch good sketch sometimes
就是不断想
有时我会列个清单
sometimes all right down homeless sometimes I’ll just go straight into illustrator and just play with different ways to do
有时我会直接打开Illustrator软件
用不同的方式设计
根据项目特点
do it depending on the project I’ll take those three different approaches find out what works best for you and
我会采用这三种不同的方式
找到最适合你的去用
通常你最初想到的创意是很明显的
and do that usually the first few ideas that come to mind are the ones that are very obvious that
每个人都想得到
that everyone will think of so as long as we like sketching out different ideas a lot and writing things
只要大概想很多不同的想法
并把它们写下来
你就会想到大多数人能想到的所有创意
things down that’s when your brain gets come up with all these other ideas that most people with me and then
将文字表达为图形可能会有点难
then rendering verbal into visual it can be kind of difficult if the
如果客户说
the client is saying like make it pop or I want it edgy but they don’t really say anything else I always
要很潮 或者要很前卫
但别的什么也不说的话
我总会要求从客户那得到更多启发
always ask clients for inspiration then from there usually you’ll show them and then there
然后从那里开始 你给他们看初稿
可能要在初稿基础上
there might be revision there might be more revisions off the revised first initial concepts and then give
修改很多很多遍
然后给客户最终版本
如果他们除了说不知道 我就是要潮之外
give them the final if they don’t get any inspiration besides just like I don’t know I supported
没有给我任何启发
supported to prop I will take those words and research coffee designs or like edgy designs and
我会记下这些话
研究流行或者前卫的设计
熟悉流行设计或前卫设计的不同类型
and kind of get a feel of different types of coffee designs or edgy designs and
然后他会说其实我喜欢这个类型
and although oh actually I like this one let’s go this direction can we see more concepts like that and then
往这个方向设计吧
我们能多看看这种概念的案例吗
然后我会往那边设计
then I’ll go in that direction if they can give you inspiration that’s the easiest because you
如果他们启发你
那是最简单的
因为你明确知道他们的项目想要什么
you can definitely see where they want to take their project you guys can go from there as
你们可以从那做起
你们能在这个频道看到
as you can see on this channel I also like to do brush lettering which I guess is an aspect of graphic design but
我还喜欢设计英文花字
我认为它是平面设计的一个方面
但它似乎又自成一体
but it’s kind of its own things but I took that and just applied it to my work
我将这点运用到我的作品中
梅里迪斯问 你怎样做字体设计
work Meredith asked how do you do your lettering and designing and then Isabelle
伊莎贝拉问
Isabelle said I don’t know if this is related with graphic design but how do you do brush lettering on procreate I was
我不确定这是否和平面设计相关
但你是如何在Procreate软件上设计英文艺术字体的
我完全不是字体设计专家
was not a pro at this at all I literally just started a few months ago but
确切地说我几个月前才开始
但因为人们一直问我这个问题
but first people have been asking I started off using pens always
我开始是用钢笔写
我会把链接放下面来说明一切
我用Procreate软件只是因为
always the links in the description for everything the only reason I use procreate is eliminates a lot of steps that
它免去了很多
如果我字体全部手写 就不得不做的步骤
that I would have to do if I was doing all the hand lettering by hand so that’s why I use procreate and that’s
那就是我用Procreate软件的原因和方式
克莱尔·马修其实出过Procreate软件使用教程
that’s how I use it Claire Marshall actually put out a tutorial on how she uses procreate which
我觉得和我的使用方法很像
which I think it’s very similar to how I do it so I’ll have that links in the description because she’s
我会放链接来说明
因为她可能比我解释得更好
she’s probably much better at explaining it than I am yeah I’ll just link that in the description ok
我直接放链接来说明吧
好了 我现在要说平面设计最难的部分了
ok now I’m going to be talking about the hardest things about graphic design Hannah hi
汉娜 嗨汉娜 做平面设计最难的是什么
hi Hannah ask what’s the hardest thing about graphic design um that
这主要看个人
um that mostly depends on the person it could be taking critiques if you
可能是接受批评
如果你不喜欢受批评的话
可能是构思概念 可能是不断修改
you don’t like that aspect of it it could be concept is and it could be revision for
对我个人来说
我认为修改
for me personally I think the revisions are what really gets to every single person who think
真的是每个平面设计者都头疼的问题
因为修改可能非常快 也可能永无止境
think design because like revisions could be real quick or they could just last forever and
我觉得人人都会赞成修改是最糟糕的部分
and ever and ever that I think every people would agree that revisions are just the worst part because
因为有可能一直改
because it can just go on forever and with all of that being said that is basically it this
说了这么多
基本上就是这样
这就是我所学到的一切
this is everything that I’ve learned just remember to be honest with yourself if this is something you truly want to do because it is
记住要诚实面对自己
这是否是你真正想做的事
因为平面设计很辛苦
is a lot of hard work it’s not just like playing around on the computer which I think a lot of people think it is it takes
不只是玩玩电脑
我觉得很多人这么以为
它需要付出很多努力 但很有价值
takes a lot of hard work but it’s very rewarding so basically I’ve just been recording for an hour and a half hopefully
基本上我已经录了一个半小时了
希望我能删减一下
hopefully I can cut this down so it’s like actually reasonable to watch but yeah I hope this helps you and
让它更加适合观看
我希望本期视频能对你有用
今天就到这儿
