This is my first blog post! A few short years into the design game I feel a need to start cataloging my experiences. Mostly as a personal archive of happenings, but also to grow in the spaces of writing and communication. Not to mention creating blog illustrations is just plain fun!
I’m going to start posting about my experience in the design realm. These posts won’t be profound, just thoughts about what I see, what I’m learning, what I've learned, what I love, what I hate, what’s up and what’s down. Hope you enjoy or don’t enjoy, just nothing in between.
I recently heard a great definition of design by Ryan Singer. He said (good) design is taking a series of inter-related things and connecting them in such a way that they don't contradict one another. I Love that and intend to use this blog as a means of connecting inter-related things.
These connections are so vital because as we connect things within a product we know it's future users will be able to easily make those connections. In a sense the product is becoming more intuitive for them because our brains have done all the heavy lifting.
