How Traveling Enhances What I Do as a Graphic Designer by V.A. Carrie


Traveling has always been a passion of mine, and little did I know that it would significantly impact my graphic design skills and the work I do for my clients. As a graphic designer, I have always strived to create unique and visually appealing designs that capture the essence of my client’s brands.

One way that traveling has influenced my graphic design skills is through exposure to diverse design styles and techniques. Every country and culture has its own unique design aesthetic, influenced by its history, traditions, and values. By immersing myself in these different design cultures, I have been able to broaden my creative horizons and incorporate elements from various styles into my work.

I would say that the most significant impact that traveling has had on being a graphic designer, is opening my eyes to the world and how everyone is different. The presence of diverse cultures and their unique approaches is truly a remarkable and enriching phenomenon.

I believe traveling helps make us more understanding of others and open to differences. I am more capable of putting myself in others’ shoes to create work that represents them and not me. The work is to represent my client and their brand and, to be honest, it doesn’t even matter if I like the end result or not!

As I sit here working today from Puerto Penasco, Mexico I can honestly say that I respect how different my surroundings are! Traveling has been an invaluable source of inspiration and growth for my graphic design skills. By immersing myself in different cultures, I have been able to learn from their unique design styles and techniques, gaining a broader creative perspective. Additionally, traveling has allowed me to better understand my client’s target audiences and create designs that resonate with them.

Lastly, exploring new environments has provided me with a fresh perspective and a wealth of inspiration and empathy, enabling me to create visually captivating designs. Overall, traveling has truly enhanced the work I do for my clients, making me a more versatile and skilled graphic designer.
