Not really my idea, I watched a presentation by Greyscalegorilla that was aimed towards designers and creative people in general, and he mentioned that he saw it on a forum (I found the original thread here
The idea is called "Make something cool every day", and every day/week/(whatever interval you want), you make something cool in whatever you want to learn or practice (C4D, Photoshop, Maybe a web design, Illustrator, anything really, but stick to the same thing as in if you start with PS you keep doing PS) and post it in a the thread.
The point is to obviously get experience, practice, and also train yourself to stick to deadlines (Every day at X time I'm going to post -whatever-). Also people can provide feedback and you can (As he says) "Learn what works and looks good, what doesn't, what you like, new techniques, etc"
ANYWAY, I think this might be a neat idea for TMS. Other than all the benefits mentioned above, it's also a good way to get some more activity here in the graphics board.
Anyone else want to do this with me? I'm not sure if I'd want to do it
all alone D:
It's a pretty neat presentation if you'd like to see it, Here's the link
