Being both a student and a teacher simultaneously gives you a lot of benefits. One of them is that you start seeing your students’ work and productivity from the teacher’s perspective. It makes you reconsider and improve your own studying approach.
Sometimes, though, being a teacher can be really frustrating, especially on distance, especially with graphic design! Everyone would agree, when communicating design ideas you’ve got to be both verbal and visual, which makes distance design education quite a vague and unsuccessful concept. So, usually, after 2-3 times of verbal corrections and explanations I start visualizing my comments in quick doodles and trying to give a visual hint to my students. It turned out to be a good personal challenge.
I want to thank all of my past and present student for their amazing and dedicated work! Let’s look at some of the projects.
