Hey, great post really enjoyed it!
I taught myself design for a while, started working as a web designer for a bit then fell in love with the actual ‘building something side’ and learnt development.
I’ve never been formally educated in design — here is my question. Do you think being taught design formally just leads you to be an impression of your teacher and not be independant? Surely their influence will overtake your own instincts in design, what do you think?
BTW, I just launched a tool for design & task management called Oiga.io — take a look, its like Trello, Asana, and Invision rolled in one.
Look forward to the next post.
