Discipline is a key to success. Make a plan and follow it.
Research the topic!
Read articles, Instagram posts.
Find some in depth literature (books, journals, studies).
Find inspiration (there are a lot of inspiring designers).
Practice a lot (preferably every day).
Get active and social, find like-minded people!
Making mistakes is a part of a process!
Never be afraid of doing something “wrong” because there is no “right”!
Ask your friends for feedback, or people who might resemble those you design for the most!
Be passionate about what you do!
There is no “finish line” FOR learning and development.
Everybody starts from nothing!
Enjoying the process is the best approach. Hard work ALWAYS pays off!
