Five Recommendations for the Graduating Designer

Just a few quick words for designers in the class of 2015,

You are entering a tremendous profession. Design is hot. More and more companies are starting to appreciate how a great user experience can be a differentiator for their business. Hopefully if you are becoming a web designer, you learned or will learn to front-end code a bit as well so you can be full-stack or a unicorn or whatever we’re calling it these days. If so, you are in such good shape, you probably don’t need my help, but all the same, here is some unsolicited advice.

So enjoy this moment. You’re graduating, you have so much ahead of you. It may be nerve-wracking, but please don’t wish ahead to times of more certainty and security, cause once you are there you will lament you didn’t take more risk and appreciate where you were when you were younger. So expect to make mistakes, we all do, you’ll learn from them and be better for it. Just be true to yourself, be a good person, smile, and enjoy the ride.

Congratulations!
