Since I've started coding, I found the design decisions the hardest part of the job. I mean, of course, you struggle with your code. You may have eventually come up with a great app or webapp... but then you go to your localhost:3000 and a sad, bad aligned website looks back at you. I feel like when you do not master design, then the hard work is just not appreciated in the same way.
I love struggling with how to make something look what I want it to. But I just have not developed yet any talent for making a good design.
What I talk about when I talk about good design? You know:
- Something that doesn't look like from the 90s
- Nice, clean, tidy design.
- Attention grabbers where they must be
- Armonious, yet original colour combinations.
- That feeling like every element is just where it belongs!
I find myself more comfortable among lines of code, but I am sure it is because I don't feel confident enough to make good designs from my own. But hey, I also think that professional designers are really a valuable asset and maybe is not really "my duty" to make a stunning design? Not sure about this. What do you think?
P/S: Graphic Designers, I really think you are all so cool...
