Most importantly though, was learning how design is the heartbeat of every company. As a designer, you have the unique opportunity to influence every aspect of a business, from product design, to sales and marketing, even company culture. I work towards to goal of having everything I create evoke emotion, action, and investment, creating a design that benefits both the company and the consumer.
The best part of design is you never have to stop learning. There is always a new trend, a new style, a new tool, or a new process to discover and incorporate.
