What are you learning about yourself and your creative process as a result of this unit’s discussion of values? How do you find that values (personal, political, cultural, etc.) inform your creative practices?
Through this units exploration project and discussion videos I have learned that the work I design does reflect my own personal values. I see that it doesn’t matter what you are designing, a logo, ad, etc we still have our values behind it. We are communicators and why not communicate something that we are passionate about and believe in. I think we can use our power of information and communication to benefit the community and society. I believe in doing design that helps with awareness and calls people to engage in conversation and to jolt them into re-thinking. My values inform my process by thinking about what the design will mean and what messages could be interpreted. I think about what the outcome will be and see if I did all the proper research to inform my audience.
