- How do I learn to be creative? 14 answers
I'm 16, from India and I really want to be a web/graphic designer.I'm good with coding, Illustrator, Photoshop etc. Problem is, I only KNOW how to do stuff, like, I see a design and I can confidently say, I can recreate that. But how do I think of something new, something beautiful? I see posters and ads everywhere like 'we can create your website for Rs.50' or 'Making a website just became easy' and it really upsets me. I think how am I better from them? Who will want to work with me when they can easily work with people like them? Moreover I participated in a few contests in 99designs and i got eliminated in the first round 12 times
People always comment not good enough, not what we are looking for etc etc.
Should I just quit because I can't think anything, I can just copy things. Should I just go back into trying to be a lame engineer as my parents want?
I'm even embarrassed in asking a question like this in a place where people talk about some serious design work. Please Help.
