Would you ever use someone else’s work and claim it to be your own? Hopefully, the answer is no. Now I use other’s work as inspiration but I never blatantly use their work. Only one word comes to mind: Criminal; well delinquent and villain too but you get the point.
In the design community I have noticed that a lot with is based about yourself from your presence online, your personal branding. How would you feel if you were branded as a cheat? Try getting work now. The principle is what you put on online will stay online for as long as the internet is up, which is most likely a very very long time.
Off of honesty, on to integrity.
The one thing I find that was a big inspiration to me was found right on the class website. There is a quote that starts out as, “Integrity is always telling myself the truth.” With is a good point. The number one person you should be honest to is yourself and for some reason Webster gave it a different title—Integrity.
Integrity is always telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.
To be honest, this blog post is a day late and not very good in my opinion. Please forgive my tardiness, I procrastinated too long in hope of a better idea. And yes, that is a picture of Pinocchio when he didn’t tell the truth. Don’t let that be you. ;)
