Cool Idea
« on: May 12, 2011, 10:16 »
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 :D).

 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 forever all alone D:



It's a pretty neat presentation if you'd like to see it, Here's the link

I think its a pretty cool idea! This should give people more and more practice and the only way to get new creative ideas to make projects is to use up all the ones you have :)

So I have one question, does each person make their own thread, or post every interval here?

One thread, and you can stay on your own schedule, and people can join in or leave whenever they want, but they should try to stick to their schedule
Like it could be going on for a few days with a few people doing daily posts (say they're all on day 3), and then someone might want to join in and do weekly, that's fine, they can just post starting there their week 1 week 2 etc

^Ah thanks for clearing that up.

Anyways I really like the idea, it should be a good add to the Graphics section.
