A design class assignment to redesign a poster. Something you might not expect to find in the portfolio of a senior designer with decades of experience. But this project set the tone for my career.
I took the opportunity to dive deep in to Illustrator and I learned everything about it. It was a seminal work in the formative years of my design career.
I took simple assignments and did work on my own to build and hone my skills with design tools. It’s something I do to this day, whether it be a new Sketch plugin, interaction tool, or management technique.
