We all know that fonts can make or break a design project. It’s also universally true that designers tend to have a huge collection of fonts installed on their mac (yes, I’m stereotyping designers, deal with it).
But do they really use it? Or they just like to save them in case they might need an awesome font for the word apocalypse?
There are many places you can go for inspiration. I like to use Pinterest, Muzli, and other design blogs but my primary resource, the one that I find that inspires me the most are design magazines. Seeing in print examples of other designers’ ideas is a treat and always cases me some significant level of excitement (yes, I look like a little kid with a new toy when I have a new magazine).
We talked about screen printing a while ago, and the truth is, I liked that experience so much that I decided to try another manual printing technique. This time around, riso printing.
UX has been something more and more requested by businesses, and it isn’t a surprise why they do so. Netflix, Pinterest, and Slack are some of the companies that proved how much of a difference UX could make in a company’s revenue and overall brand loyalty.
Lately, I’ve been feeling low on motivation, continually self-doubting myself and feeling like an imposter.
But as I have told you before, I decided to do something about it. Besides forcing myself to break out of apathy and write more blog posts’ ideas, I also bought a couple of books that were on my wishlist for some time. And believe it or not, these helped me out immensely so maybe they will help you too.
