How to pretend you’re an amazing designer


Wish that you could be a better designer? Want to give the impression that designing is something that comes naturally to you? You never know, if you pretend long enough that you are an amazing designer, then your design skills are only going to improve!

To help you on your way, here are some of the best ways to pretend that you are an amazing designer. 

Make everything a delight

Are you someone who loves animations, generic, but cute illustrations and a lot of clever copy? If you have ever been asked to justify these things, then one single word could be all that you are looking for. If you make everything a delight, then you will be adding emotional connection with the user, which means that it doesn’t matter about the rest of the design! 

Use some industry language

When it comes to business advice, the main thing that you are going to be told is that you should never confuse anyone with industry language. However, when it comes to showcasing yourself as an amazing designer, this could be the exact thing to do. Use a lot of jargon when you talk and not only will you have the appearance of being an expert, but you will also suitably confuse those around you to the point that they won’t want to ask what exactly is going on with your design. 

Focus on the way it looks

Designing something means that you are going to be focused a lot on how something looks, however, there is a good chance that you will also be asked to look at functionality. If you are not sure that you are going to be able to deliver both of these things, then it is a much better idea to focus on the aesthetics over everything else. If you can wow them with this, then chances are that they won’t look too deeply for the other things. 

Make sure you appear busy

When someone is choosing a designer, they are going to want to know whether or not they are a popular choice with other people. If you are just starting out and need to make it look like you have plenty to do, then this possible. Display other designs that you may have done, or, if that is limited, quickly draw up basic sketches and let your clients know that they are things that you are currently working on for other clients. 

Over time, if you pretend like you are a pro designer, then we are sure that it will become the norm for you, before you know it, you will be a fully fledged pro designer and you will feel ready to face the design world and be an expert in what you do!
