What mistakes or traps should young designers try to avoid when creating an illustration? “They should embrace and understand feedback. Constructive feedback from both peers and authoritative figures can provide an incredibly valuable asset for growth and innovation. The important part is to take a step back after hearing feedback and decide how it should affect your work moving forward. That said, don’t resist challenges to try new techniques, formats or technologies. Believe it or not, every piece of feedback (positive or negative) can be valuable. It is how you decide to ingest the feedback that can make a positive impact for your future growth and discoveries.”
