Hey you! Yes I am talking about you. Just sit down and think about yourself for a minute. Have you done for your job enough? Don’t need to learn anything else? I think that propably your answer will be: “Yes I need”. So what are you waiting for? Do not waste of your time! And start to do something for yourself. Doesn’t metter if it is for a job, for your friends, etc. Just start to do something what fills you 🙂 .
But I am Designer so I am goint to talk in this way
As a joung designer full of energy and passion for other designers. Would you like to become a good designer full of knowledge and skills? So … you have to learn!
For example me: I like read from invisionapp blog – there is a lot of articles from the other designers. You can find here a lot of tips like: “How to become good UX designer without degree”, “How to design for global meaning” and more… On the other side I learn from designers such as: Tobias van Schneider. This guy is like “boom designer”. (If you know the others good just let me know in comments below 🙂 ) He is inspirational ‘couse his articles, newsletters and of course broadcasts called NTMY. I think that is good to know pages, person who inspire you and from you can learn something.
Find out your way of learning
It means that here is many various people. For someone is better to learn from books, than for the others from internet. I am the person who love learns from broadcast and “pictures”. As a UI and webdesigner I collect inspiration from looking on other sites, wireframes, microsites, apps (desktop, mobile) etc. . I am not coder, or programmer but I know the knowledge about html5, css3 and other languages. In my opinion it is necessary for my work to knew it: for cooperation between me and programmers. So just find out the way how you would liketo learn new things and just start! I am so glad that now I am “just” 23, becouse I would like to learn a lot! … and if I realize I have to. Becouse our community growing up every single day and every single minute and there is many and maaaany others better than me 🙂 .
Love that moments
In High School was learning boring for me. I can’t say that I wasn’t good at it, but I didn’t study design. High School gave me a lot of time for learning of design by my self. And I totally enjoy that times which I spent with designer softwares. When I close my yes I can feel that moment when I learnt something and finished it first time. It was something different. And I enjoyed it. Nowdays I am enjoying reading articles from the others good designer or application too. You must just realize that if you start learning will be better for you in your present time and for your future of course!
For example start just with reading one article per a day! You can let me know after a mount if you still reading 🙂 . I’ll be really happy if someone will.
