50 Things Every Design Student Should Know

Super cool graphic designer Jamie Wieck posted a list of '50 things Every Graphic Design Student Should Know'. Well, just ignore the *graphic* part of the title, because pretty much everything on this list applies to us as well (okay maybe you don't need a printer friend).

I've posted a few of my favorites, or follow the link below to read the full list:



2. There is always someone better.

Regardless of how good you are, there will always be someone better. It’s surprisingly easy to waste time worrying about this. #the50



9. Curate your work.

Never stop editing your portfolio. Three strong pieces are better than ten weak ones – nobody looks for quantity, just quality. #the50



16. Don’t waste your internship.

A studio’s work can dip, as can its energy. Ignore this and be indispensable, the onus is on you to find something that needs doing. #the50
