There are many things everybody can learn from girls, including designers. Whenever we see girls the things we first notice about them is how well she is dressed & how particular they are about in whatever they do. This led me to a thought that what it takes making these girls so perfect & being a designer myself how can I learn things from girls & implement them in my design.
So I had chat with some girls from which I came to know following points that designer can always follow & learn from girls.
1. Time Management

In comparison to guys, gals are very scheduled in everything they do, they have fix time for various task they perform whole day. Designer can learn time management from girls as whenever designer get involved in any project they don’t track time and end up giving more time than usual in their work, which make them less efficient & unproductive. On other hand girls plan their day in advance, they have their own to-do list which they follow very strictly.Many designer face similar problem of spending huge amount of time on recreational web surfing as searching for inspiration for their work, they should limit this time & should remain focus with their work rather than getting distracted.
Girls are always experimenting with their look, closet, hair & many other things. In one way or the other they try out things in different ways. By experimenting they keep themselves look fabulous always. Lady Gaga is a good example of getting success with experimenting different looks. In the same way designers also need to experiment with their design rather than just sticking with same methods. Experimentation is very important as people are now open to new ideas & concepts.
3. Color Theory

Girls are particular about their clothes, make-up, accessories, shoes, etc. When you see a girl perfectly dressed, you can easily notice different colors they are wearing, being a designer you can easily find out that they are really good at color combination & patterns. They perfectly wear different colors all around them & carry them off with style. So as a designer you can always look upon girls for inspiration, where you will get lots of idea about color schemes, color palettes & patterns, which you can implement in your next design project.

Girls easily adjust themselves in new environment, it’s all because they are very talkative in nature & are great social animals. As they make new friends easily & quickly, it all start with a “hi” which ends up creating friends. In design community socializing is really important & designer can always learn a thing or two from girls about socializing.

If you have seen a girls wardrobe you would definitely understand what I mean by learning organization from girls. There are tonnes of things in their room like 100’s of handbags, 1000s of shoes & the list never ends. But whenever they want anything they have quick access to it without loosing anytime. In the same way designer always have huge digital data in their computer which needs to be organized all the time.

Bargaining does not always involve money, but its a kind of negotiation. Girls are really good at negotiating in every kind of situations like shopping, winning in conversation with guys, etc. On other hand designer can use this technique of bargaining with their clients or boss about their design where they can save lots of effort without compromising on creativity.

I am not wrong if I say Girls are most creative creature on the planet, most of the people will agree with this. Girls don’t like things to be simple they always want something to be added & do things different so they can get noticed. Even designers need to be creative with their work, which will give them an edge over others that will give them a good recognition.
Whenever as a designer you feel low on inspiration & ideas I suggest have a good look at girls & ask them for suggestion, you will definitely get lots of good ideas that will help you get a boost in your creativity.
