Blast From the Past: Show Your Earliest Examples of Work
It's always interesting (and mostly embarrassing) to look back at your earliest examples of work and see how far you've come since then. I was recently giving a presentation on the fundamentals of graphic design, and as part of my introduction, I showed some of my earliest work to demonstrate how bad I really was. I thought it would be fun to do that same here.
So, to kick it off, here's mine: an awareness poster I created while working in retail loss prevention...
I have to be honest, I was so proud of this when I first created it. I thought the eclectic mix of colors, fonts and graphics made this poster engaging and exciting. Looking at it today, I realize that I may have inadvertently used the graphics to block my message. It's full of typos and it breaks almost every graphic design rule known to man. I'm happy to save that I've come a long way since then!
So, do you have an example of your earliest work? If so, share it here and reflect on how you've grown since then.
