How can one create a design style?

How can a person create a style of graphics that uniquely identifies that person?

I’ve often heard of many forms of art the importance of creating a style, how does this apply to graphic design?


I think this applies more for designer-illustrators. As the other poster wrote, usually it’s more about communicating the personality of the client’s brand than your own style. That said, many designers choose to focus on specific industries, which makes sense since each industry has its own aesthetics and fashions.

However, if you’re a designer-illustrator, then people will likely be coming to you because they like your particular style of illustration, which should be complimented by your design. This is when you’re most likely to see a designer’s portfolio contain projects all sharing a similar signature style.

There are also some well-known non-illustrator designers who are very highly sought because of their particular style of design. But very few designers ever reach that level (where they’ll be requested by clients by name). So for most, it’s more important to be flexible and versatile. A consistent level of quality is usually more important than a consistent style for designers.
