Every year, I try to write a post to celebrate and showcase female designers in one form or another.
Last year, I researched and was acquainted with new designers for the 15 Ted Talk’s by amazing women post.
For that reason, this year, I decided to go in that same direction, and do a list of female designers that can inspire my future work.
I met Ágatha Kretli last year when I decided to enroll in a master’s degree.
She’s a badass freelancer who does illustration and design.
I decided to interview her to know her opinion, not only on design, but also about illustration, formal education, freelance life, and a couple of other things.
Last year, I wrote a post sharing how I became a professional designer, and why I was going to be a design student.
Now, I’m going to share with you how it went, and why as it turned out, it wasn’t the right decision for me.
Lately, people seem to come up with creative names for their profession. I’m not sure if it’s due to boredom or it just feels right, but LinkedIn has been flooded with gurus and specialists of all fields.
How do you present yourself as a designer to someone who doesn’t know what a designer does? And how do you clarify what you do in simple words?
Information design is a field that makes use of visual tools to translate complex data.
You probably heard about data visualization before, but today is the day you get to know why it matters.
Open-design is a movement that consists of the development of physical products by sharing its design information publicly.
It’s a co-creation process between the designer and the user. Because of that, often times they are free and shared online.
