Constructive Criticism…

Criticism. It can be hard to listen to sometimes! I think the best way to deal with criticism is to not attach yourself to the exact way something is. The photography posters, for example, were a huge source of criticism this week. Everyone had something they needed to revise or work on, but mostly everyone had been previously satisfied with their work. I know I was at least, so opening myself up to all these changes I should make was difficult at first. I think the best way to deal with criticism is to separate yourself from your piece, as Ed Dorsa said in his presentation of industrial design, your work is not for you. As designers we have to learn what other people see in our work and the best way to do that is through criticism. It’s said over and over again that “it’s not personal.” I’m just really learning how to listen, react, and discern the criticism that I hear because I think all of those are a vital tools for every designer to have.
