Although the weather is cold and rainy, the workshop “ Graphic design without computer?” held by London College for Design & Fashion still drew much attention of a lot of young people who enjoy graphic design and attended the workshop. With 20 years of working and teaching experience in graphic design, Mr Andy Lawrence – Programme Leader of Graphic Design at the London College for Design & Fashion provided the participants many useful and practical advice related to the job of a graphic designer. The most popular question at the workshop is “ How to generate a new idea for a design brief?” Mr Andy Lawrence shared his own experience “To produce a good design, ideas are most important. Don’t start designing immediately after receiving the brief, you must research about the culture, customer’s needs, the market, competitors… Be open to develop your creativity. Have practical experiences before designing.”
