Graphic design is a diversified field which encompasses many forms of design. Whether it is identity design, packaging design, website design, or art directions; graphic design touches them all. That is the reason why many emerging talented logo designers work in multiple industries and enjoy implementing the art of one type over another. Most of them have explorative tendencies which help them grow as a creative.
The other thing that supports their artistic ventures is a life partner who understands and practices in the same industry. Once they find their other creative half, their life is magical transformed into a roller coaster of learning and growth. There comes a time when, together, they reach a state of creative nirvana.
