The effectiveness of a monogram is that it can be produced visually as an exact replication or likeness. It generally requires the skills of an experienced and skilled graphic designer to pull this off. By now, the utilization of all software tools at this designer’s disposal comes across as second nature. But behind these technical skills and know-how comes the talismanic artistry. Some designers are born with the talent, while others work hard to develop an artistic skill set that customers will recognize as their own.
Speaking of the customer, most of the graphic designer’s work is commercial. But a pleasing aspect of the designer’s craft is the catering towards the domestic market. It is here that the artist truly gets an opportunity to go to town to exercise his or her creative license. It is justifiably so because after giving a layman’s (or woman’s) brief, the client trusts the designer with his or her artistic aspirations. The use of the monogrammed product is but one of many, but it is a stand-out in décor design.
All aspects of the home environment can be livened up or given an indication of a characteristic personality in the form of a monogrammed print, anything from rustic customized coffee mugs in the kitchen to a retro-styled mural in the living room, to a quaintly designed monogram pillow cover in the master bedroom. Customers with new arrivals can create the perfect welcome across freshly painted nursery walls.
The icing on the cake for any talented and ambitious graphic designer is to receive a commission to design and produce a large mural for a downtown public space, monogrammed, painted or otherwise. And customers are always welcome to add their own design intentions.
