Art School is for Fakers


I used to be adamant against people going to film school to learn how to make movies. Simply because, the best guys never had to. It was natural to them.

I still believe that.

That's why I'm taking design classes. Because I can't do it. And I want to.

And since I'm not one of those people who can just see the world like that, my next best option is learning how to imitate them.

That's what I do designing pages for my job. I've learned I'm a decent mimic. I once had to transform one of the pages originally laid out by our top designer for a different size page. You look at it and MacGyver a way to do it yourself. Most of my pages are stuff I've seen work for other people.
