With a new year comes new goals.
In this article, I want to write out key areas I will learn as a designer.
One of the most exciting things about being a designer is that I can never stop learning.
But, to be honest, I’m not proactive in trying out new technologies. Like I’ll learn and read about them, but I never actually use them.
Maybe it’s because I don’t know what to expect. Maybe it’s because it’s busy. Maybe it’s because I’m scared. Maybe…
In 2023, I want to actively learn and use new technology. I want to understand how they’ll impact my life as a designer.
So, here are some of the tech I want to explore:
Specifically for virtual reality, I’m applying for the “Immersive Media and Mixed Reality” study abroad program at UAL for the fall! Fingers crossed 🤞
Note: I did not include web3 because I’m still skeptical of it. But maybe I’ll get into it somehow.
In my previous article “Who Are My Design Heroes?” I noted most of my “design heroes” are design engineers.
Thus, in 2023, I will improve my web development skills with accessibility in mind.
I plan to do this in a few ways
Right now for a side project, one I’m very interested in is one called “work cafes.” Will maybe share more in the future through dev logs or posts!
I’m a huge fan of 3D work. Like obsessed.
Some of my favorite artists include:
As you can tell, my favorite 3D style is clay-like and soft. Thus, I will learn 3D modeling to create my favorite style.
In the future, I may learn three.js or web frameworks to add interactive 3D models to my websites.
Thank you for being awesome and reading this far! :)
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out on LinkedIn, Twitter, or by email. Will love to set up a casual call and chat!
