The bridge between the amateur designer and the professional designer is typography mastery. And although theory, tools, and tactics are part of a well-rounded skill set, it’s just as important to possess a growth mindset to really master your craft.
Let me explain.
A mindset is a belief or attitude that orients the way someone handles situations. It predetermines the way a person interprets and responds to a circumstance.
Your mind is an extremely powerful instrument. Just believing in something can help you persevere and achieve the impossible. And what you believe can form your new reality.
And like a broken record, we are constantly stressing, over and over, that it’s the way you think and approach typography which is the real key to long-term success in design.
You can’t condition your mind by watching YouTube, Skillshare, or reading books! You have to learn, practice, and keep pushing it until it becomes engrained in you and your design decision-making becomes second nature.
