I read the title and knew I was reading a post from a real designer. Let me explain. In the past, I have been a designer. My first “real” job was in a design office in New York City. I had to design the cover for a magazine. I am really proud of that.
I have recently returned to the UK. While I was living in New York, I started creating art for the internet. It was always my dream to be a designer and I’ve got the design skills. But I never expected my design skills to be put to use in design jobs.
You are right. I was a designer for three years before I took the leap to creating art. I was really good at creating art but wasnt good at designing. I still dont have all the skills I need to design, but I do know that I can create art. I just need to get those skills to market. Ive created art for a couple other sites and I have a couple new websites I started in the last month or so.
I see the problem. Ive been designing for a long time now and I still dont have that skill. I can create art for pretty much anything. But I dont have the skills to design. I want to learn to design. I want to learn to paint so I can learn to create art for other people. I want to create art that is timeless and looks good all the time.
This may be one of those design/art/web-site/blog comments that’s been on people’s minds for a while and has no simple answer. Or maybe it has a simple answer and nobody is bothering to read it. Or maybe everyone is reading it and they are thinking about it and it’s just so simple they don’t know about it yet.
I’ve been asked to teach at least once a week about how to design websites. I have, and people seem to like it. So, I figure I should start a blog. So here we go.
Design is a field of study that tries to find ways to make the human experience more pleasant and less painful.
I can’t tell you how to design a website, but I can tell you a little bit about what I do. I try to learn the latest trends, techniques, and practices in web design. I also try to design websites that are fun and user-friendly. I believe that the best designs are the ones that are easy to use and are beautiful to look at.
While designing websites I spend time in front of the computer, I do this because I like to see the websites I design. I like to use my imagination and creativity, and I like to see how something can be made to be more appealing to the customers. I also like the challenge of designing a website that can be useful and informative.
As with all things, there are good and bad websites, and I try to be kind to the ones that I design. But I’ll share a few thoughts on some of them.
