About this workshop

What does a good week at work look like? Who or what do you aspire to be in two, or even ten years time? What title is right for you? Would you make a good manager? Should you learn to code, run user research sessions or be involved in business strategy?

Designers come in all shapes and sizes. Skills that some designers absolutely love and thrive in, others get no energy from. And that’s ok – if we didn’t have a diversity of skills and interests, our work would suffer for it.

No one person can be good at everything, but it’s really hard to know who you are and what you’ll enjoy most (and therefore be the best at). This workshop aims to give you time to come up with those answers, get up close and personal, celebrate your wins and avoid the things you don’t enjoy.

Takeaways

  • Get a sense of your current strengths and weaknesses across a wide range of common design skills and abilities.
  • Pick out your biggest wins and dissect what made them so satisfying for you.
  • Compare those skills and interests with fellow classmates, and spend safe 1:1 time with experienced practicing designers.
  • Learn about what kind of work, company, team or culture you will work best within
  • Leave with some practical tools and tips to help you continue your design journey in the right direction for you.

Prereqs & Preparation

  • Bring your laptop & cell phone.
  • Think of at least one example of a project, product or piece of work you’re proud of.
