My latests passion
I have been in the field of user experience since 8.5 years by now and worked a lot on web technologies. My expertise lies in development and am a total novice in design.
Whenever I use to see professional icons and designs, I always use to appreciate them. Being a novice in design, I always loved design. I was always curious to know everything about designing, iconography, branding, color theory.
Normally people have the impression that developers cannot design and whenever I showed my interest in designing, many people told me the same. I took this as a challenge and thought, one day I will also design.
This interest of mine, generated a passion inside me to learn designing and I started gathering as much information as possible about designing.
2 days back I downloaded trial version of photoshop and started designing. I tried with designing small icons.
The first set of icons I developed is as follows. Though its not very professional and I know it needs some grooming, but I am happy that I was able to do some designing.
I showed this to my manager and colleagues and they were quite happy to see my design and encouraged my design. This generated more interest in me about designing and I tried some more design. This time I took help from one of the online tutorials and developed a book and this is what I came up with today.
Next I tried the following USB flash drive
After seeing the above design my colleagues liked it a lot. This is giving me more encouragement and I am falling in love with design.which
