As a UX designer, the focus of my training has been on how products function rather than how they look. Lately, with more time to practice and improve my UI skills, I’ve developed an interest in creating more eye-catching visual assets, most of which takes place in Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop (and neither of which I have much experience in). When it comes to learning these new skills, YouTube is the perfect place to turn for quick and easy tutorials.
