Hello, Hi, How are you?
Thanks for taking the time to check out my stuff. I have a couple of things to say.
In design school, they always tell me that you are just as good as your portfolio. They said, you have to show work, and share them to everybody. I agree. But for me, portfolios get so outdated easily. Don’t even get me started on the execution on how you visually present them. Do a video reel. Do a carousel. Masonry grid is so 2014. What is your design instahandle? Now as I consider myself as a UX / UI designer, my focus will be heavily on my past experiences and stories. I also believe sharing my design war wounds in a story format. If you want my app-button-Ui designs and wine-bottle-label projects, I can provide that to you separately, or you can check my other creative links (you know how to use the internet).
1. This is a wordpress template- I know, I know, your a digital designer Erik, can you just code your site? Though I love coding, coding is not my core competency, visual and UX design are. Don't get me wrong I still keep my html and css knives sharp. I also, believe that I should spend my time honing my visual design and UX skills rather than updating and fixing my site.
2. Print projects on your portfolio? Eyeroll all day, right? I am not ashamed of my past. As a UX designer, my best experience projects or case studies were print projects. Poster design is an interaction design that activates the environment, proximity to the viewer, and even tactile aspects. Digital is just another medium. Plus, Massimo Vignelli once said, If you can design one thing, you can design everything.
