I became a graphic designer because at age 12 I realized it was way faster for me to click the fill tool on Microsoft Paint than to color a page with a crayon. Since then I’ve come to love all aspects of the design process.
My favorite part is having that breakthrough moment, that “aha!” moment when I find a solution to a problem. I get a blast of dopamine and all those other good chemicals in my brain. It’s like finding that certain puzzle piece that helps two previously disparate parts of the puzzle come together. It’s like when Indiana Jones clicks that gemstone into the dragon’s mouth, or whatever (I haven’t seen a lot of Indiana Jones).
