Notes From a Young Designer
Here is a secret that’s not-so-secret: the design community is incredibly accessible.
I tell you this because it took a while to figure this out for myself — and I hope that this little post will encourage you to reach out more quickly than I did while navigating the very beginning of my design journey.
Being completely honest, all cards on the table, I can say that my most meaningful design growth has come from mentorship. As someone who has learned design from on-the-job experience and personal passion projects, this has been my door to expanding insight and continuing to be challenged to reach higher, go further.
