Reflections on design from nine BFA Graphic Design students

Insight: 9 Designers, 9 Processes
DsGD 120 Exhibition Design (part 1)
This exhibition is a chance to look inside the minds of 9 graphic design students at San José State University. Learn how we move through the process of making a design, and the designs evolve even after leaving our control. We all approach the process in a similar way, but it is our personal quirks that allow our creative minds to make it real.
Although the creative process has potential to be a rough one, it is important for people to see what is happening in our minds, because in that moment when you finish something that you love, it becomes magic.
And that's something people can relate to.
