Hybrid Conf: The inspired designer

Hybrid Conf: The inspired designer

The inspired designer presented by Fabio Basile (@fffabs) at HybridConf 2013. Fabio discussed how much fun design is and encouraged everyone to just put their work out there. Here's what I learned from his talk.

  • Design is fun.
  • Design is profitable
  • Design is cool
  • Design is scary
  • Design is annoying.
  • Design gives immediate feedback.
  • Obscurity can be good, you want attention only after you're doing great work.
  • Post stuff online (use Dribbble).
  • Give people access to your PSD's and allow them to edit them, they will put forward their own ideas.
  • Design what you need and fake it until you make it, if you need a portfolio then just design things even if they have no other purpose.
  • Be nice to everyone, the world is a small town.
