The starter of a new year makes us reflect on what we plan to do next, personally and professionally.
In my case, I decided to go back to school and to find a new job. My previous contract wasn’t renewed, so I need to get back out there and sell myself as a designer. But how do I do that exactly? Should I keep pushing towards being the best generalist designer that I can be or do I need to specialize in a particular field?
What’s the difference between a generalist and a specialist designer and how do we chose between them?
Christmas is almost here, we’re only ten days away.
If you are anything like me, you’re struggling to buy the right presents. And now you’re leaving the arduous task for the last possible day. Well, you don’t need to, because I’m landing you a hand.
A year ago this blog was launched, and honestly, I couldn’t be more proud.
I wanted to share with the world all the things that I found about design, the things that get me inspired and keep me curious.
You applied for a job that fits you like a glove, and you feel like you can do great things for the company while growing as a professional. The only thing that’s making you unsure is being the only designer there.
Some time goes by, and you start to feel the pressure, while the imposter syndrome kicks in. How do you manage to be the only designer in your workplace without losing your shit?
Slanted is a German-based, bi-annual publication created in 2014 by Lars Harmsen and Julia Kahl.
I like the previous issue of Slanted so much that I will write a post about design from Japan.
However, with issue 32 I had no idea what to expect. Initially, the cover didn’t appeal to me like the other and to be frank, and I wasn’t interested in reading it. But all of that changed.
