Design is anything you make it. You are in charge. That is what I love about art and design. But design can take on a life of its own, changing and growing in ways never imagined. The process is not always neat or organized, most of the time it is a mountain of sketches, designing and redesigning, questioning yourself, and messy workspaces.
As a graphic design student, I think this can also be applied to me. I get a little messy and my workspace is not always clean, but the finished project is worth the hard work.
