The Top 5 Secrets For Becoming A Design Conquistador

Finding new places means you can find new mediums. Never leaving your comfort zone will lead you to keep going round in circles.

1. Explore!

When going to new places you will face new challenges; learning how to overcome these trials is part of the fun really…

2. Boldly go where no man has gone before

There will come a time when you may come up with an idea that can only be executed using a completely different medium than yours. Even though you might have to outsource to other designers, having the vaguest of ideas of the medium will help, too.

3. Learn new languages

No paratrooper jumps off an airplane for the first time during a crucial mission. They practice time and time again before their mission.

4. Free time. Prototype to build a better understanding!

A great way to slow down a little bit, and document your personal processes.

5. Document every step of your journey
