Is it like your daily routine to share your work with other designers or colleagues? That’s is good. I think that this is one of the best ways how to grow as a designer. If you are able to share your feelings you should be able to describe your final work much better to your clients, boss …
How it was with me in this way
I think, with this could help another designer with you could discuss too. I knew it very well. I worked just by myself for about 3 or 4 years. I can’t say that it wasn’t a great time. It was of course, but something was missing. Work friend. I mean another designer.
He couldn’t do the same part of the job as you. But it is really good to know that you can discuss some designer problem with someone. “Like Peter please, my client told me … could you help me imagine another point of view for a better solution to my problem?”. And there are many and many more things.
More heads, more knowledge
Don’t be scared ask for help from somebody. In my opinion is really nice to spend some time with someone who is better than you. I know many people from whom I am learning 🙂 . Learning is just smarter if you can learn from somebody whom you behave respect. This time is not just about learning. But probably about making some solution about problems. For example me. I have met my friend Tom who is a designer as me. Me always meet together once a month. But it is really great time.
When we met the first time I had a lot of problems with designing of application. And he helped me. Sounds easy? Of course that. He just showed me a different viewpoint. It was a viewpoint like he was my customer and he simply answered me on 60% of my problems. Nowadays we just speak about new trends and application for designers. On our last meeting, we spoke about application craft from invision.
