Designers Staying Ahead of The Curve

June 4, 2009

I just finished reading a really well put together article on Six Revisions about how to go about getting ahead of the design game in these tough times. with so many designers going out on their own there are a few things author/designer/developer Aaron Irizarry thinks we should focus on.

From collaboration to hitting the books to really just wanting to do what you do, the article is a good little way to get your mind back on track and think about why we became designers in the first place and what we want to get out of our careers.

While the article focuses on designers it’s a good read and pertinent advice for most of us.

Give it some love here.
