Design is everywhere. It exists in both digital and physical spaces and is the foundation of our digital world. But not everyone working in the field started their journey there! Many of us didn’t start out as artists, creatives, or graphic designers but instead bankers, business associates, or healthcare professionals. Despite this, our paths, experiences, skill sets, and passions led us to the world of design.
During this 1-hour event, Associate UI/UX Program Director Patrick McClary will share his experience going from being a sports writer to high school teacher to UX designer and he’ll offer his top 5 tips for how you might kick-start your career change to a design position.
