You might not realize this, but I’ve been studying graphic design for a super long time!
Back in High School, it was something my nerdy colleagues and I were totally obsessed with.
Back during the days of Adobe Photo 5.0, early graphics plugins, and still before the days of really fancy graphic suites.
I’m not trying to say that I’m some graphic design guru; heck I totally suck at graphic design! However, I can honestly say that I’ve been studying this type of stuff for the better part of a decade.
I know what you’re thinking:
“But mike, if you admittedly suck at design, then what do you have to offer?!”
There’s one thing that all of this experience has taught me, that I’d like to impart unto you at this time.
That lesson is as follows; nature will always be a better designer than you, me, or absolutely anyone.
Nature provides a design that’s so magnificent, timeless, and beautiful, and it’s going to outlast any of us.
That’s why I’m always trying my best to integrate nature into all of my creations.
Whether I’m creating slides for an online course, covers for an ebook, or even really neat graphics here on this nifty blog.
I use nature, because nature has a proven artwork style that’s omnipotent, omnipresent, and it’s always going to work.
Best of all, nature’s never going to go out of style.
So, just keep this in mind, the next time you’re designing anything.
Maybe you can integrate and “swipe” from the greatest artist of all?
Food for thought, and please have a beautiful day.
Cordially and humbly yours…
Mike “Nature Boy” DeVincent
