I love video games.
I have loved video games since I was a little kid. I started playing Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country on my brothers’ SNES. I’ve been playing video games for as long as I can remember. But of all video games, there is one that has been pretty near and dear to me since 2001.
With the rise of the digital design age along with the rise of design blogs, I have noticed something that makes me cringe. No longer does anyone talk about the creative process. It honestly makes me feel pretty upset. Great design doesn’t come from a machine. Great design comes from the human mind, and that is one thing that many design blogs do not teach.
There are loads of amateur designers and design bloggers, who haven’t been trained with the creative process. I don’t blame them for not knowing, but it’s something that I personally feel needs to be taught to anyone who wants to pursue a career in design.
