I’ve been doing some self exploration; of what I really want to do with my life and where I want to go. I have an incredible career in UI design which I won’t be giving up for anything. But at times it’s my career and not where my passion really resides. Of course I love design – and will always be a designer. But I am one of those people who cannot just do one thing. I have to be doing multiple things at a time; like projects, music, writing and photography.
Lately my attention has been drawn to designers starting tech startups. I have been intrigued on the shift from being a designer to becoming the CEO of a company. I will be having some interviews with designers with startups. There is so much potential in designers and not just in the creative side. I believe we all have to be somewhat business savy to have clients, outgoing to express creativity and the ability to sort information. We’re a rare breed and such people should not go unnoticed. I feel that the design/art fields have been overlooked and one of my goals is to make that change. Every human being is brillant and sophisticated. This is why I want to zone in on creatives who are starting companies. Because that to me, is quite the leap.
I want to write about what’s going on underneath the Tweets and Dribbble posts. Where the sweat and tears are falling onto. Exposing a side of designers and the tech industry that we haven’t seen before. Blazing past the politics and going to the core. Are you with me? Are you ready?
If you’re interested in being apart of this and want to be featured on my site with your startup, please feel free to contact me. I’ll respond as quickly as I can.
