Today I was just browsing around my Facebook like usual and then a video image ads show up in my timeline. The scene is quite interesting when Danny Elfman explaining on how to strive in the music and movie industry. If you don’t know Danny Elfman, he is an American composer, singer, songwriter, record producer, actor and voice artist. You see his works on many iconic Hollywood movies. You can read her complete profile here.
On that video ads, he encouraging young artists to keep learning from mistakes and moving on. He pointed out that success is only achievable by doing, making mistakes, learn from those mistakes, and moving on. Here is what he said as I hear from the video:
If you really going to succeed, there is no other way but by doing, making mistakes, and then learning from those mistakes and moving on.
I personally agree with that, because doing something and “grabbing” mistakes is like getting valuable feedback from the real world. The most important part is to use the mistake we did as an input to our next act. Now we see that “mistakes” is actually a very valuable data that not everyone can get it!
So I write his statement on that video as a quote and also make a quote poster so everyone can share it into social media or download it for yourself. Spread the inspiration, because why not?
How to Design It Quickly?
Designing on this site quote maker requires no efforts. In fact, I enjoy it because it is fun. There is some kind of “surprise element” there. I have recorded the process of designing it. Here is the video:
As you can see on that video, I always use the same pattern each time designing it. I called it the “generate and tweak” approach. It generally has three steps like the following:
- The first thing is playing with the global automation feature (see that flashing yellow icon). It will automatically generate beautiful image. It randomizes everything
- Then go to a more specific area to generate. Let say the font only, or the background only. Play with it.
- Next is tweak it manually, you can change each graphic object properties there. Or activating another graphic object like frame, or quotes mark.
This approach will save you tons of time and also feel so fun. You should try it by go to the application right here: Quote Maker, Or you can hit the “redesign” button below to create your own look and feel but still have the same quotes from Danny Elfman I write above.
