And what would you advise to beginners? 🤔
Just open your eyes, observe and talk to people. You’ll find plenty of room for improvement. You can learn your tools very quickly, but finding the problem and offering the right solutions to it may take a lot more time to learn. So pay attention to that.
Always. Ask. The. Users / Targeted audience. Only they know what they need from the product and what is useless for them.
I’d recommend to not try everything in the beginning, nobody can do it. Start with some theory (books, online, or in person courses) analyze the current solutions and most important: practice. Design is sth that can only be learned by practicing so don’t be afraid to put your ideas out there.
Pay attention to everyday products. Be curious about how they work…or don’t work. Reflect on it and ask questions.
Start getting the information from one source at the beginning. Because there are too many sources and could be confusing.
Work with passion, be confident, support your choices, and make sure you can motivate them, and don’t be afraid to ask. Work with a vision, make design your second nature, and find your sources of knowledge, inspiration, and motivation. Everybody started at the bottom. Together we build the future’
