Here are some hard truths that will set you free as a designer 👇
1. You will spend more time selling your design than actually designing 🤷♀️
2. Your cheque is signed by a business owner. Having a strong backbone and standing up for your design to the folks who sign your cheques, needs a lot of clarity and articulation ability. When you don't have it, your design career will suffer 🥺
3. Your mindset matters a lot more than your skillset and toolset when it comes to design. Unfortunately design schools don't teach you the former 😠
4. Building design competence is different from building a design career. The former is input and later is output. It is human to focus on the output. This will make you chase your tail 😏
5. In the world of digital product design, you will be able to converse better using your UI than your UX. Human beings around you will appreciate tangibles more than intangibles. So up your UI skills even if you are a UX designer. No one will tell you that 🤨
