This is the second blog post in a new series called A Designer’s Toolbox.
It’s an exciting time to be a designer. Almost everyday I read about a great new tool that has been released. We all work differently, with our own processes and on a wide range of projects, but I thought it would be helpful to list a few great resources that (I think) are essential to all designers.
This is the first blog post in a new series called A Designer’s Toolbox where I’ll recommend some great resources for designers. This will be particularly aimed at young designers or design students.
A little while ago I noticed that more and more of the projects appearing in my Bēhance feed were resume designs. As you’d expect with Bēhance or Dribbble; some of them were beautiful, some of them ugly, and others just plain weird.
However, design is not about making something pretty. Sure, aesthetics matter a great deal but design is about problem solving. A lot of these resumes, even the great looking ones, were creating more problems that they solved.
I’m currently spending my evenings designing an iOS app. It’s a personal project so I’m having to squeeze in time between my paid client work. It’s proving to be a challenge, but a thoroughly enjoyable one and it’s incredible exciting and rewarding to see the app starting to take shape.
