So you want to be a designer?

I get asked all the time about design stuff and how to improve one’s self as a designer. I don’t claim to be a GREAT designer but I do love to learn new things all the time. If you are interested in seeing some of what I do to grow my skills, here’s a couple resources that I suggest:

Then, when you understand that, add this to your repertoire.

Also… I bookmark & share a LOT of design stuff, if you are interested in that. Use some sort of reader software and subscribe to design blogs. It’s well worth it! Here’s my link feeds:

Last but not least… ALWAYS BE LEARNING!!!
