Trying my best at my internship, but still dissapoint myself and them
first thanks for taking the trouble to even read my thread, you have busy lives as well, so thanks for putting in the time :)
So, the title says it basically, I really work hard and try my best to create good and usefull artwork at the company I'm working now, but most of my work just isn't usefull at all.
You can find my portfolio website here:
estherw . carbonmade . com
The above portfolio is also the portfolio on which they've selected me as their intern.
I'm not going to post any of the stuff I've made for them, even though it's small, it's probably better not to post anything.
The things that stand out from the feedback I get from my supervisor/tutor is that my designs aren't good and that I'm very, very slow.
-I try to make the endproduct immediately, instead trying different things.
-I easily fall back on clichés and use some lazy 'excuse' to justify it. (Not on purpose, but because I don't know any better)
-Also, I tend to really work on one tiny bit of a piece and forget about the rest.
We both realise that I still need to learn a lot, and I do learn a lot from them, but I just wish that I could give something more back.
So, I really want to learn how to design better than I do now. How fast I am is probably secondary, since that'll come to when you work more. I work for about 7 hours a day, sometimes longer, so Ive got that covered.
I really feel horrible that I'm letting them down this way...
So, what can I do to improve my designs?
