Types of Designers

“The life of a designer is a life of fight. Fight against the ugliness.” – Massimo Vignelli. Although we’re all working towards the same objective, we designers have our distinct skill sets and preferences. There are designers who love flat design and there are designers who love skeuomorphism. Similarly, there are designers who like pastel shades and minimalism and there are those who like grunge and vibrance.

Due to the massive response we received from the post ‘HOW TO ANNOY A GRAPHIC DESIGNER’, we decided to bring you another compilation on types of graphic designers clients associate with.

Think Design has created a series of images that describe the different types of designers based on tastes, habits and attributes. To have a little fun of my own, am going to mention some designers I know and the category and i think the fall in. Myself, am a Minimalist Maverick. Don’t sue me guys! Here goes nothing!

Dennis Kumi Danso — The Ultra Detailed

David Arthur — The Pantone Guru

Joel Kiki Amedoe — The Colour Coder

Abigail Esi Nunoo — The Minimalist Maverick

Andrew Denkyira — The Icon Master

Ato DeGraft Johnson — Typography Smitten

Check them out below.

    This is very interesting and informative. But I would say that I dont have a particular style. I’m a bit of a minimalist, colour coder and a typography smitten when it comes to my designs. They are all fused in one.
