After graduating, I told myself I would get cracking on updating my “design” skills. I graduated with an Industrial Engineering degree and what I took away from this 5 years was that I sort of enjoy Web design. Mainly creating UIs and designing UX workflows. I find it fascinating trying to understand how users behave on Web pages, how they think, why they do what they do, and how we can work with users instead of against them. So I told myself I’d take some time off and work on a portfolio so that I could, maybe, apply to design firms that specialized in Web design, or maybe even work freelance. I just needed something to show them that I was capable.
