Journey: lessons from the amazing journey of being a designer →
About two years ago I set myself the goal of writing articles that invite reflection more than anything; topics that can help newcomer designers step back from the day-to-day craft and think about our discipline at large.
- On business & craft → Finding the balance between profitability and the passion for your craft.
- On paying attention → It’s hard to see new things if you don’t know how to pay attention and cut through the noise.
- On sharing insights → Shopify UX team on delighting your UX team with a design system contribution.
The UX Collective newsletter is a self-funded newsletter read by over 106,233 people every week. The best way you can support it is by sharing it with your design friends.
