The Style Problem for Artists
Kyle T Webster

The problem of “having a style” has plagued me for a while. I went to school for 3D animation, transferred into becoming a 2D motion graphics artist, and transferred again into the role as a graphic designer. All of which dramatically impacted the style of work I did for clients and myself. Those transformations took a lot of convincing on the part of my future employers as well (many of which responded with “are you sure you applied to the right role?”), but having various styles and abilities under my belt has never been something that‘s hindered me. in an industry that enjoys multiple abilities in one role, there’s always room to use past knowledge in a new job. Explore, enjoy learning, and never feel pressure to start something new.
