I started off learning graphic design, working on print ranging from ads to magazines. While it was fun to work on these practical print projects, it was not me; wanting more, I started to look into motion and interaction.
As someone who is always eager to learn, I started getting myself familiar with html and css. Starting to become a more digital designer. Being knowledgable on this subject made it easier for me to make informed decisions when it comes to digital products. Rather than relying on asking web developers I could work out what works or wouldn't for a large portion myself.
Knowing how to build doesn't tell you what to build. The next thing I started to work on was research. Why do we create that page or that button? Diving into analytics and reading up on design research, I've been making far more informed decisions.
Currently working in a small design team where I help translating the clients question to the developers by design.
