Recently @cdgcontentagency posted about this and it triggered this memory of a girl getting torn down by other designers in a Facebook Group because she was using Canva and promoting her graphic design services.
🤔 Are you kidding me?! We play @canva like it’s not a fire program still? Crazy.🔥
I stepped into the conversation and encouraged her to ignore them and keep pushing while also correcting a couple of designers who wanted to “correct” my encouragement. Chile. 🙃 She later messaged me and thanked me for standing up for her. I don’t have to know you to cheer you on. ❤🔥
As a designer who is educated in “designer software”, I’ve seen many of those same designers create low quality graphics while using that “designer software” and charging an arm and a leg for them. How could this be? 🤨 Because Adobe is not a magic wand. 🪄 You don’t just open it and instantly have creativity or taste.
🌟 An individual who designs graphics using their own creativity and passion is known as a graphic designer. It’s that simple. 🌟
If you can do that, you are a designer. Anyone who tells you differently is a hater and by definition, if you have haters, you are doing something right. So keep pushing and give them some more to hate on.
‼️ If you’re a designer who likes to tear others down because they may not use the same software as you, exit stage left, as negativity is never tolerated in the design community, especially during mental health awareness month.
