Are you in an urge to be a successful graphic designer? If yes, then you need to follow the seven golden rules that will lead you to the path of success.

1. Keep yourself relaxed: designing is much more than the world you are living in. Designing requires a lot of imagination and thus you should be highly relaxed. People often assume that one can design the best graphics if he is seated in front of the computer for a very long time.

2. Do not put your ideas on the computer: once you have got a rough idea of the graphic, it is always good to make a sketch of it on a sheet of paper. This will help you figure out the good and bad aspects of the design. Doing this will save a lot of time in designing the logo on your system.

3. Choose the design software that is comfortable for you: every person has a unique opinion when it comes to the matter of designing softwares. You need to choose the. What you want is a program that lets you create designs without having to worry too much about complicated professional features, like robust layer management and fine-grained tools

4. Don’t get caught up in software: many new designers presume that they have to have a deep knowledge in the tool before using it. Understanding the basics of the tool can help you learn things on your own and complete the desired tasks.

5. Don’t get “too good” at design”
A lot of people will spend hours following Photoshop tutorials on how to create “photo realistic” design elements. If you never get too good at design, you’ll never make the mistake of designing things that are way over the top and end up looking gaudy and unnecessary. The trend in design is moving toward flatness, simplicity, and minimalism, so it’s a good time for the amateur designer to join in.

6. Follow thought leaders in the design world: Everyone thinks they have a good designing taste. Chances are you think so too. But it’s not all about what you like—a good designer’s taste will evolve and will also incorporate ideas of those people that millions agree to have a good design sensibility. Start following top designers on Twitter and reading some of the best design sites. Don’t limit yourself to design, though; follow what goes on in the tech and startup worlds as well..

7. Present yourself as a problem-solver :You have total freedom in your personal brand. As a designer, you run the risk of being perceived by companies, developers, and peers as “just a designer”—an artist whose tool is Photoshop. It’s up to you to present yourself as more than that—as someone who thinks deeply about problems and delivers solutions that are creative and innovative. It’s your responsibility (if you want) to elevate your role and show people that design delivers creative solutions to many problems.
