  • Permanent

    Posted on April 5th, 2013 Ge No comments

    Until today, I am still afraid to do anything permanent. For my felt project, I could screen print some content onto the felt piece. But the fact that whatever I chose to screen print will stay there forever. It has to be something that the viewers are not going to get tired of and it has to be something that most people will enjoy reading. The permanent element in design always scares me. I think its because I will always question whether the content is value enough to be permanent. Also, I am afraid what I think is valuable right now might not be so good  10 years from now. Is it okay to have something designed with a mark of that period of time or a mark of who I am as a designer? I understand it is important to express yourself as a designer but leaving something permanent around is scary.
