Day to Day

I spend a lot of time in creative programs like Photoshop, Flash, Illustrator and Coding Applications. I also spend a lot of time on the whiteboard sketching and creating diagrams. Most days involve a meeting or design critique where we get feedback on our designs from others in the company and within our team.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Finding inspiration and learning how to switch between many different styles and types of work has helped me a lot. For example, you might have to write code one day and work on a sketch the next day. Learning how to take feedback is also an essential skill for designers.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for professionals

Learn the design process. It's a powerful perspective that will change the way you view the world and is applicable to everything you might want to do in the future.
