What is design outside the school?
Understand the Designer Landscape

Thinking about a career in design? want to know about design outside the school? but not sure where to start? As a self-taught designer, I did my fair share of exploring before landing on product and UX design.

The good news is, no matter if you are studying design or what stage of your career you’re in or how far afield your background may seem, if it’s something you aspire to, it’s entirely possible to find your niche in the design world.

What to expect at this workshop? My thoughts on setting yourself on the path to calling yourself a designer.
