    • What is your advice for design beginners/those just starting out?

      Design. Design. Design.

      Seriously, this is a craft that you get better at by doing. Anything you can do to stretch those design muscles the better. Do a conceptual redesign of something you think could be better. Work on a small project with friends. Never stop designing.

      Personally right now I’m noodling around a “digitally assisted” board game (terrible name I know). I’m trying to see how to make something that’s fun to play face to face where the board and pieces have value and meaning beyond looking pretty and being in a common space, but where phones and tablets let you do things you couldn’t do in cardboard.

      It has nothing to do with my day job, but it’s nice to have a project that you can stay completely hands on with.
