Learn to organise
As a designer, you might end up working on multiple projects at once. You need strong organisation skills to manage all the projects and tasks.
Learn every day
Successful people learn every single day. They read, listen to podcasts or simply learn from the mistakes they make.
Bonus: Stop saying you know it all
Learn to listen
It might sound simple, but we are so used to talking all the tipe. As a designer you are doing a service to others, so listen to what they need.
Put first things first
When working on let’s say 3 projects at once, you need to prioritize which one has the tightest deadline and work on it with the highest priority.
The client launched the app and it got terrible reviews? It’s not the user’s fault. It’s your responsibility as a designer to make products usable. Dont blame others.
Understand the value
Understand the value you provide. Your design is not just some shapes and letters. It lets your clients build and grow businesses to serve many people.
Be your worst critic
Before presenting your work to the client, review it yourself. Check if it meets your own standards. Ask yourself: if you were a client, would you accept it?
