程序设计我爱你_如何用爱设计

程序设计我爱你

重点 (Top highlight)

It’s easy to get excited about your job if you’re designing for a company or industry that you REALLY care about, but the reality is that most people won’t actually get to do that. Don’t believe me? You don’t have to, this is actually coming from Gallup, who found that around the world only 13% of people are actually engaged at work, that leaves 87% not happy.

我 T的很容易感到兴奋你的工作,如果你正在设计一个公司或行业,你很在意,但现实情况是,大多数人不会真正得到这样做。 不相信我吗 您不必一定要这样做,这实际上是来自盖洛普(Gallup) ,他发现,在全球范围内,只有13%的人实际从事工作,这使87%的人不高兴。

I don’t have number for design specific jobs, but my guess is that it won’t deviate drastically, let me explain why. The companies that you consider cool, only need so many designers, and if you’re working as a freelancer, the “cool” clients probably aren’t coming as often as you’d like. On top of that, these cool companies that you wish you could work for will probably have designers taking “your” place, but some of them would probably rather work somewhere else. See what I mean?

我没有设计特定工作的编号,但是我猜想它不会出现很大的偏差,请允许我解释一下原因。 认为很酷的公司只需要这么多的设计师,而如果您是自由职业者,那么“很酷”的客户可能不会像您想要的那样经常出现。 最重要的是,您希望您能为之工作的这些很酷的公司可能会让设计师代替您,但其中一些人可能宁愿在其他地方工作。 明白了吗?

Now, if you are in a position where you can work with whoever you want, being able to pick your clients or projects, well… Congrats! You’re one of the lucky ones, just don’t forget that you deserve a fair compensation even if you’re having tons of fun, and love the company, if you’re good at something, you should never do it for free (or even below a fair price).

现在,如果您处于可以与任何人合作的位置,能够挑选您的客户或项目,那么……恭喜! 您是幸运的人之一,只是别忘了,即使您有很多乐趣,也应该得到公平的补偿,并热爱公司,如果您擅长做某事,则永远不要免费(甚至低于合理价格)。

Ok… what about the rest of the mortals? Is all hope lost?

好吧...其余的凡人呢? 所有的希望都消失了吗?

I don’t think so, otherwise this would be a very different article.

我不这么认为,否则这将是一篇非常不同的文章。

奋斗可以是积极的 (Struggle can be positive)

Even though I suck at it, I really love skateboarding, and I would love to have had the chance to design something for a skateboarding brand, just because I relate so much with the culture and industry. Unfortunately, except for university & personal projects, I never really got the opportunity — but that's fine.

即使我很喜欢它,我也确实很喜欢滑板运动,而且我很想有机会为滑板品牌设计一些东西,只是因为我与文化和产业联系紧密。 不幸的是,除了大学和个人项目外,我从未真正获得过机会-很好。

The truth is that, like most people, I have more than a single passion and it just happens that my biggest passion actually isn’t skateboarding. If you follow me on Medium you can probably guess what it is — Design. For me, that means that if I’m doing something related with Design I’m probably happy, the “what” that actually is becomes a secondary concern.

事实是,像大多数人一样,我不仅拥有一种激情,而且恰恰是我最大的激情实际上不是滑板。 如果您在Medium上关注我,您可能会猜到它是什么-设计。 对我来说,这意味着如果我正在做一些与Design相关的事情,我可能会很高兴,实际上是“什么”成为了第二要务。

Thought, even when your job is actually doing the thing you love the most it’s not all sunshine and rainbows, there’s a reason why someone is paying you to do something, there will be always things you’d rather not do, clients you would rather not have, meetings you’d rather skip, conversations you’d rather avoid, but it’s all part of the job, and if you love the essence of it you should be able to power through the rest.

想想,即使您的工作实际上是在做您最钟爱的事情,也不只是阳光和彩虹,还是有原因有人会付钱给您做某事,但总会有您不愿做的事情,客户会宁愿没有,您不希望跳过会议,宁愿避免谈话,但这都是工作的一部分,如果您喜欢它的本质,那么您应该能够在其余工作中发挥作用。

In my past I’ve designed a magazine for real-estate, ads for auto-dealers, branding for accounting firms, books for children, and much more… not exactly what I would describe as “dream jobs”, but it helped me pay the bills whilst I was getting real world experience, learning stuff and progressing.

在过去,我曾为房地产设计杂志,为自动交易者设计的广告,为会计师事务所设计的品牌,为儿童开设的书等等……不完全是我所说的“理想工作”,但它帮助我支付了在我获得现实世界的经验,学习东西并取得进步的同时付账。

I’m lucky to say that I’ve been designing professionally since I was 18, but there were times before and briefly after where my job wasn’t design related, just because I needed a salary to be able to get by. Right after graduating from university I struggled to find actual paying job or clients… can’t say I miss the Portuguese financial crisis from 2010. Believe it or not, I was hired not once but twice, to work for companies that after a few months just stopped paying my salary, no notice, nothing… Oh, and they expected me to just continue to show up and work as if that was normal… 🤷‍♂

我很幸运地说,我从18岁起就一直从事专业设计,但是前后有时我的工作与设计无关,只是因为我需要一份能赚到的薪水。 大学毕业后,我一直在努力寻找真正的有薪工作或客户……不能说我错过了2010年的葡萄牙金融危机。信不信由你,我被聘用的不是一次而是两次,为在几个月后工作的公司工作只是停止支付我的薪水,没有通知,什么也没有……哦,他们希望我继续出现并像正常工作一样工作……🤷‍♂

I also tried freelance and lets just say that most of the clients I got still owe me money…

我还尝试了自由职业者,只说我得到的大多数客户还欠我钱……

Thanks to all that good luck, I decided to look for a “real” job, any job that could be a bit more reliable. That’s how I ended up working on toll roads. I know, kind of random, but at least I could pay the bills and in between drivers I spent the dead time drawing on my sketch book, which helped me improve my drawing skills. #silverlining

多亏了所有的好运,我决定寻找一份“真实的”工作,任何可能更可靠的工作。 这就是我最终在收费公路上工作的方式。 我知道,这是随机的,但至少我可以付账,并且在两次驾驶之间,我将空余时间花在了素描本上,这有助于我提高绘画技巧。 #silverlining

It didn’t take long to actually get back to designing, but this struggle helped me gain some perspective, which is why I see the chance to get paid to design anything as a real gift.

实际花费了很长时间才回到设计领域,但是这种挣扎帮助我获得了一些见识,这就是为什么我看到有机会获得酬劳来设计任何东西作为真正的礼物的原因。

That’s not one of the tips though, this is just context to help illustrate where I’m coming from. Honestly, I hope you don’t have to go through any kind of struggle to start to appreciate your job, but sometimes that can help — what doesn’t kill you, doesn’t just make you stronger, it also makes you appreciate things a bit more.

但这不是技巧之一,这只是上下文,可以帮助说明我来自哪里。 老实说,我希望您不必经历任何挣扎就可以开始欣赏您的工作,但是有时候这可以帮到您-什么不会杀死您,不仅仅会使您变得更坚强,还会让您欣赏事物多一点。

Now, let’s get into the actual tips.

现在,让我们进入实际的技巧。

1.一点幸福就可以走很长一段路 (1. A little happiness can go a long way)

Make sure that you love something about your job, I mean REALLY love. The pay-check doesn’t count in case you’re wondering, that will never be real love.In order to endure the things you don’t enjoy, you need a pay-off (again, not the money kind), something you’re looking forward to. If you don’t have that something you’ll just burn yourself down and probably others around you.

确保您爱上一份工作,我的意思是真正的爱。 如果您想知道,薪水支票不会算作真正的爱情。为了忍受您不喜欢的事情,您需要还清(不是金钱的东西),您很期待。 如果您没有这些东西,那么您将自己和周围的其他人都烧掉。

If you’re a designer, I have good news. There are many sides to our job, and you don’t have to love every single one of them. You might be more inclined towards crafting interactions and/or visuals, maybe you like to interact with people and learn about them or you’re just really into prototyping stuff. Whatever it is, lean into it and turn it into your super power. Find a reason to do it as much as possible, because if you do, people will start noticing your inclination towards that, and likely start seeing you as the expert of that, which likely means that you’ll probably get to do more of it.

如果您是设计师,我有个好消息。 我们的工作有很多方面,您不必爱每个人。 您可能更倾向于设计互动和/或视觉效果,也许您想与人互动并了解他们,或者您真的在制作原型产品。 不管它是什么,都要靠它,将它变成您的超级力量。 找到尽可能多的理由,因为如果这样做,人们会开始注意到您对此的倾向,并可能开始将您视为该领域的专家,这可能意味着您可能会做更多的事情。

Personally, I’ve been doing this through out my entire career, and believe me it just works, and my job just keeps on becoming more and more the things I like the most.

就我个人而言,我在整个职业生涯中一直在做这件事,并相信我的做法是行得通的,而且我的工作一直在变得越来越多,我最喜欢的东西。

With a little luck, you can leverage that little thing that makes you happy and turn it into your full time job. Now, if you’re a bit like me, and love a bit of variety, then you can try to look for the intersection point of the things you love and bring them together, when it makes sense, of course.

运气好的话,您可以利用让自己快乐的那件事,将其转变为全职工作。 现在,如果您有点像我,并且喜欢一些变化,那么您可以尝试寻找自己喜欢的事物的交点,然后在合理的情况下将它们组合在一起。

For instance, I love illustration, though working as a Product Designer you don’t always get a chance to actually illustrate, so I had to find a way.

例如,我喜欢插图,尽管作为产品设计师,您并不总是有机会进行实际的插图说明,所以我必须找到一种方法。

If you need to present your work, you can focus on the actual work, show off your prototypes, mocks and flows, but after a while that becomes a bit boring and not super engaging, as a way to combat that you can do a bit of storytelling, and illustration goes perfectly with that. See what I mean? The opportunities are there, you just have to be willing to take them.

如果您需要展示您的作品,则可以专注于实际的作品,展示您的原型,模拟和流程,但是过一会儿,这会变得有些无聊且没有超级吸引力,以此作为一种战斗方法,您可以做一些讲故事,而插图则与此完美契合。 明白了吗? 机会就在那里,您只需要愿意抓住它们。

2.不断进步 (2. Keep progressing)

The are no shortcuts, as far as I know, the only way you get good at something is by practising it. I believe that “talent” is just a sum of passion and repetition. The cool thing about practising is that the better you are, the easier and funner it becomes.When you’re progressing at the things that you love, it will be noticeable, and as I already said for the previous point, people will think of you first when that thing is needed. Which just gives you the chance to do more of it and get even better in the process.

据我所知,这不是捷径,唯一擅长做某事的方法就是练习。 我相信“人才”只是激情和重复的总和。 练习的一个很酷的事情是,你变得更好,变得越容易和越有趣。当你在做自己喜欢的事情时,它会变得引人注目,正如我前面提到的那样,人们会想到您首先需要那个东西。 这只是让您有机会做更多的事情,并在此过程中变得更好。

If you’re afraid you’ll get stuck doing one thing and will eventually start hating it, switch it up. Get better at more stuff, specially things that complement the things you’re already good at.

如果您害怕做某事会陷入困境,并最终开始讨厌它,那就把它调高。 在更多的东西上变得更好,特别是那些可以补充您已经擅长的东西的东西。

For instance, going back to me, I’m a bit of a design slut and love almost every field, being animation one of them.

例如,回到我身边,我有点设计贱人,几乎喜欢每个领域,成为动画之一。

I can’t imagine just stopping doing animation, so… in one of the first assignments when I started my first UX job, I found a way to sneak it — at first as a way to present work, then turning that into prototypes… and guess what? That’s where I started to become the “animation guru” in the team. Looking back, I wasn’t even that great at it, but with enough practice it started became noticeable my passion for it, and it became one of my “super powers”, and because of that I was able to do it more and more, which allowed me to learn, improve and get better at it.

我无法想象只是停止做动画,所以……在开始我的第一个UX工作的第一个任务中,我找到了一种潜行的方法-首先是一种呈现作品的方式,然后将其变成原型……并且你猜怎么了? 那就是我开始成为团队中“动画大师”的地方。 回顾过去,我什至没有那么擅长,但是经过足够的练习,它开始成为我对它的热情,并成为我的“超级大国”之一,因此,我能够做得越来越多,这使我能够学习,改进并变得更好。

I must warn you though, this is where the impostor syndrome strikes the hardest. When you’re stepping out of your comfort zone and trying new things, in your mind you’ll never be good enough.

不过,我必须警告您,这是冒名顶替综合症打击最严重的地方。 当您走出舒适区并尝试新事物时,在您的脑海中,您将永远变得不够出色。

As you learn and progress at a certain thing, you’ll realize there’s much more you didn’t know, and so much more talented people around the world.Don’t let that discourage you, progression is an internal battle, if today you’re better than yesterday, you’re on the same track all these talented people went through.

当您在某件事上学习和进步时,您会意识到还有很多您不知道的东西,世界上还有更多的才华横溢的人。别让它灰心丧气,进步就是一场内在的战斗,如果今天您“比昨天更好,所有这些才华横溢的人都走在同一个轨道上。

Being good at something isn’t a final state, it’s a never ending work in progress. The moment you stop trying to get better, is the moment you start to get worst.

擅长某事不是最终状态,这是一项永无止境的工作。 您停止努力变得更好的那一刻,就是您开始变得最糟糕的那一刻。

3.给af#ck (3. Give a f#ck)

When you just don’t care, you can be really good at something but still deliver crap. This is where you really need to do some soul searching and find a reason to care about what you’re about to deliver. If you can’t find anything I can give you something to care about — care about yourself.

当您根本不在乎时,您可以真正擅长某些事情,但仍然会带来一些麻烦。 在这里,您确实需要进行全面的搜索,并找到理由来关心即将交付的产品。 如果您找不到任何东西,我可以给您一些值得关心的事情-关心您自己。

Image for post

Take pride in your work and have a little self-respect. As a designer, you’re in a position where you can make the world a bit better than it is, even if it’s just visually better. So push for your best ideas, get a backbone and fight for what you believe in.

对您的工作感到自豪,并要有一点自尊。 作为设计师,即使在视觉上更好,您也可以使世界比现在更好。 因此,推动您的最佳想法,获得支持并为您的信念而奋斗。

If you design just for the pay-check you might see yourself without one sooner than you think. These things catch up to you.

如果您仅设计用于薪水支票,则可能比您想象的要早。 这些事情赶上了你。

Now, good designers don’t just care about themselves, they have empathy with who they’re designing for, so my advice there is to do some research. Learn more about these people and try to connect with them on a more human level. Seeing the impact that your work can have, and going beyond numbers can really help you start caring about what you deliver.

现在,优秀的设计师不仅会在乎自己,他们会对设计对象有所了解,因此我的建议是进行一些研究。 了解有关这些人的更多信息,并尝试在更人性的层面上与他们联系。 看到您的工作可能产生的影响以及超越数字,这确实可以帮助您开始关心所交付的内容。

It also helps if you care in someway about the company’s mission, even if the thing you’re designing for them isn’t your dream.

如果您某种程度上关心公司的使命,即使您为他们设计的东西不是您的梦想,它也会有所帮助。

What if you can’t believe in their mission because it’s evil? — personally I don’t have experience at that level, but my naive advice would be to try to push for change from the inside, worst case scenario you’ll get fired because of it, you can get on the news or write a medium post about it and on the next day you’ll have companies that respect your view offering you a job. 😅

如果您因为邪恶而无法相信他们的使命,该怎么办? -个人而言,我没有该级别的经验,但是我的天真建议是尝试从内部推动变化,在最坏的情况下,您会因此而被解雇,您可以获取新闻或撰写媒介发布相关信息,第二天,您将拥有尊重您观点的公司,为您提供工作。 😅

4.不要只是挂在那里 (4. Don’t just hang in there)

If you want to take action and start pushing for the things you care the most sometimes it might be difficult to actually get started, because you already have a lot of work to do, and the right opportunity can take time to arise, but be patient and stay sharp. Above anything, make sure that you don’t miss out on the opportunity, even if it required an extra effort. This is for you, so if you don’t put in the effort, nobody will.

如果您想采取行动并开始努力进行自己最关心的事情,有时可能很难真正开始,因为您已经有很多工作要做,正确的机会可能会花费一些时间,但要耐心等待并保持敏锐。 最重要的是,即使您需要付出额外的努力,也要确保您不要错过机会。 这是给您的,因此,如果您不付出努力,没人会这么做。

Also, don’t give up on the first challenge, sometimes it takes a bit for people to notice your efforts, just make sure to be consistent and keep pushing. If after a significant push from your side you don’t see a return, then it’s time to redirect your efforts to a place where you can potentially see that happening, which possibly means looking for another job.

同样,不要放弃第一个挑战,有时候人们会花点时间注意到您的努力,只是要确保前后一致并不断努力。 如果从您身边大力推动之后您看不到回报,那么该是时候将您的工作重新定向到可能会看到这种情况发生的地方了,这可能意味着寻找另一份工作。

I’ve been there. It’s easy to get stuck in the tunnel, after a while the darkness starts to seem familiar, kind of comfortable even, to a point where you forget that light is even a thing.

我去过那儿。 一段时间之后,黑暗开始变得熟悉,甚至很舒适,以至于您忘记了光甚至是东西,很容易卡在隧道中。

Or maybe, you know it’s still there but you just expect it to find you, but in life most of us aren’t in a train and if you want to see light again, you have to walk towards the end of the tunnel.

或者,也许您知道它仍然存在,但您只是希望它能找到您,但是我们生活中的大多数人都不在火车上,如果您想再次看到光明,就必须走到隧道尽头。

5.组队 (5. Team up)

Continuing the tunnel metaphor, you’re not on a train but you’re not actually alone. Most of the time there will be people around you, and these can also be your way to get to the light, and you can even walk towards it together.

继续隧道的比喻,您不在火车上,但实际上并不孤单。 在大多数情况下,周围会有人,这些人也可能是您了解事物的方式,甚至可以一起走向它。

After more than a decade working for different companies in very different countries I came to realize that this is true everywhere. The impact that the people you work with have on how much you love what you‘re doing, sometimes can be greater than the actual job. That means that even if you have your dream job you might end up hating it just because of the people you’re working with.

在非常不同的国家为不同的公司工作了十多年之后,我才意识到在所有地方都是如此。 与您一起工作的人对您对所做工作的热爱程度的影响有时会大于实际工作。 这意味着即使您拥有理想的工作,您也可能会因为与您一起工作的人而讨厌它。

Now, most of the times you can’t actually pick the people you work with, but you can at least try to be the positive change.

现在,在大多数情况下,您实际上不能选择与您一起工作的人,但是您至少可以尝试成为积极的改变。

Most important thing to keep in mind, don’t be an asshole. Believe it or not, that goes a long way.

要记住的最重要的事情,不要混蛋。 信不信由你,这很长的路要走。

Don’t judge people by their surface, try to see their potential. Most of your teammates can actually help you be better, and you can help them too. Just leverage each other’s skills, do cool things and be kind, before you know it you’ll have made a few new friends, and going to work will become that much easier.

不要从表面上评判人,而是要看看他们的潜力。 实际上,大多数队友都可以帮助您变得更好,您也可以帮助他们。 仅仅利用彼此的技能,做一些有趣的事情,并表现出友善,在不知不觉中就已经结识了几个新朋友,而工作将变得更加容易。

What if you’re surrounded by assholes? Don’t bother trying to be the positive change, just run to the exit, that’s definitely not a sustainable place to work, specially if you’re looking to actually love what you do.

如果您被混蛋包围了怎么办? 不要为成为一个积极的改变而烦恼,只是跑到出口,那绝对不是一个可持续的工作场所,特别是如果您想真正热爱自己的工作。

6.让自己开心 (6. Allow yourself to have fun)

A simple fact of life is that eventually, we’re all going to die, so there’s no point in taking life super seriously. Have fun with it, take chances and when you can, make it entertaining, even if it’s just for you.

生活的一个简单事实是,最终,我们都会死掉,所以没有必要将生活当回事。 尽享乐趣,把握机会,尽享乐趣,即使只是为您而设。

Image for post

I feel like everyone is using memes and GIFs in presentations for that exact reason nowadays, but personally I like to take in one step further, where people might not expect it – easter eggs. I lost count how many times I’ve subtly quoted Michael Scott, I know it’s kind of silly but it just makes it fun for me and it’s not even that hard. See?

如今,我觉得每个人都在演示中使用模因和GIF,但是我个人更喜欢采取进一步措施,人们可能不会想到它-复活节彩蛋。 我数不清我引用迈克尔·斯科特(Michael Scott)的次数,我知道这很愚蠢,但这对我来说很有趣, 这并不难 。 看到?

The extra bonus you also get, is when someone notices it, you might have just made a new friend for life.

您还会获得的额外奖励是,当有人注意到它时,您可能刚刚结了一个新朋友。

Another way to have fun is to work on something for yourself. It doesn’t even have to be something with big ambitions, just have fun and take the change to learn stuff and get better at something.

获得乐趣的另一种方法是为自己工作。 它甚至不必具有雄心勃勃的东西,只需要玩得开心,并采取改变来学习知识并在某些方面变得更好。

Personally I really think having fun is key, that’s why I often engage in side things like making a poster for this thing or a sticker for that other thing, because I have fun with that and it’s a nice break from the day-to-day routine. And if your company does things like hack days, join in and find something fun to work on.

我个人真的认为,玩乐是关键,这就是为什么我经常从事诸如为该事物制作海报或为另一事物做贴纸之类的附带事情的原因,因为我对此感到很开心,而且这是每天休息的好时机常规。 而且,如果您的公司做诸如黑客大乱斗之类的事情,请加入并找到一些有趣的工作。

Remember this, the moment you stop having fun brings you once step closer to the moment when you start to hate it.

记住这一点,当您停止玩乐的那一刻,您会比开始讨厌它的那一刻更近一步。

7.休息一下 (7. Take a break)

Last, but probably the most important thing in this article, take a break.

最后,但也许是本文中最重要的一点,休息一下。

Image for post

As you can see by the frequency I post on Medium, I’m not afraid of taking a break. When I thought of this point I did a bit of research and came across this article, which reminded me other things I read in the past — which is probably why I came up with it in the first place — where researchers have study people working and they found there’s an actual limit to the amount of time that a human being can stay concentrated in a single task without a break, and apparently that’s less than an hour (between 52–45 min, depending where you read it), so, you’re not actually making yourself or your employer any favours by working long hours without taking a break.

从我在“中”上发布的频率可以看出,我不害怕休息一下。 当我想到这一点时,我做了一些研究,发现了这篇文章 ,这使我想起了我过去读过的其他东西-这也许就是为什么我首先提出它的原因-研究人员在这里研究工作和他们发现一个人在不间断地专注于一项任务的时间上有一个实际的限制,而且显然少于一小时(在52-45分钟之间,具体取决于您在何处阅读),因此,实际上,长时间不休息不会真正使自己或您的雇主受益。

You need breaks to allow your brain to process information, and to make sure that the time you’re investing in something is actually pushing you forward. Work smarter, not harder.

您需要休息一下,以使您的大脑能够处理信息,并确保您在某物上投入的时间实际上在推动您前进。 更聪明地工作,而不是更努力。

You might already been doing it unintentionally, by mindless scrolling slack or looking at cat memes on the internet, so why don’t be intentional about it?

您可能已经无意地这样做了,通过漫不经心地滚动松弛或看着互联网上的猫咪模因,那么为什么不故意这样做呢?

This goes beyond just taking breaks every hour or so. You also have to allow yourself to switch off when you leave work and enjoy the other things in your life. Again, if you don’t, you’re not actually making anyone any favours, you’re just burning yourself down.

这不仅仅是每小时大约休息一下。 您还必须在下班后关掉自己,享受生活中的其他事情。 再一次,如果您不这样做,那么您实际上并没有在给任何人任何帮助,只是在消磨自己。

If you take anything from this article, let it be this: Rest! Enjoy your family, enjoy your friends or just your own alone time, allow yourself to do whatever it takes for you to recharge, even if that’s watching The Office for the 10th time in a row. Loving what you do doesn’t mean you have to do it 24/7. You only have 4-5 hours of creative energy per day, so use them wisely and then chill.

如果您从本文中获取任何东西,那就这样吧:休息! 享受您的家人,享受您的朋友,或者只是您自己的独处时光,即使您连续第十次观看《办公室》,也可以自己做些让您充值的事情。 爱你所做的并不意味着你必须24/7全天候地做。 每天您只有4-5个小时的创造力,因此请明智地使用它们,然后放松。

说起来容易做起来难吗? (Easier said than done?)

What if you don’t love absolutely anything about design? Why did you become a designer? Think hard about that, if you don’t see a way out I can only advise you to start looking for another job. You only get one life, so don’t waste more time doing something you hate.

如果您完全不喜欢设计,该怎么办? 你为什么成为设计师? 认真考虑一下,如果您没有出路,我只能建议您开始寻找另一份工作。 您只有一生,所以不要浪费更多的时间去做自己讨厌的事情。

If there’s something you love or are interested in, invest some of your own time on that thing. For instance, if you’re a designer but your dream is to actually be an illustrator, the only way that someone hires you to do that kind of work (even if it’s for an internship) is if you either have some level of experience/education on it or if you have a portfolio with example of what you can do. You have to take the first step and put in the time if you want to switch. You might be thinking “Sure guy! that’s easier said than done.” but I’m not just saying it, this (and everything I write for that matter) comes from personal experience.

如果有您喜欢或感兴趣的东西,请花一些自己的时间在那东西上。 举例来说,如果您是设计师,但您的梦想是真正成为插画家,那么某人雇用您从事此类工作(即使是实习)的唯一方法是您是否具有一定的经验/对其进行教育,或者您是否有可以做的事的作品集。 如果要切换,则必须采取第一步并花时间。 您可能会想:“当然! 说起来容易做起来难。” 但是我不仅在说,这(以及我为此写的所有内容)都来自个人经验。

3 years into my first properly paying design job (post-struggle), I wanted to move to London and get into UX Design, but I felt like my background and experience (in graphic design) wasn’t enough to get me into it, so on my own time I worked on a couple of fictional projects with a engineer friend of mine (shout-out Rui Peres) and then used that work as portfolio to get my first UX Design job, in London.

在我完成第一个薪水合理的设计工作(挣扎后)的3年后,我想搬到伦敦并进入UX Design,但我感到自己的背景和经验(图形设计方面)不足以吸引我,因此,在我自己的时间里,我和我的一个工程师朋友(大声疾呼的Rui Peres )一起进行了一些虚构的项目,然后将其用作投资组合,以在伦敦获得我的第一份UX设计工作。

If you want change, you have to initiate it, and bear in mind that most likely you will still have to endure things that are less fun, because they will always be there.

如果要更改,则必须启动更改,并记住,很可能您仍将不得不忍受那些不太有趣的事情,因为它们将一直存在。

Because design is my passion, I see anything that makes me a better designer as a growth opportunity I should take. Sure, it’s definitely still more fun to sit behind a sketch-book, iPad or computer and make something, but if I want my work to have impact, I need a bigger than my desk and that means doing things that are outside my comfort zone. Now, actually doing that will just help me be a better at the thing I love, so it’s not that difficult to accept it.

因为设计是我的激情,所以我认为任何使我成为更好的设计师的事物都是我应该抓住的增长机会。 当然,坐在素描本,iPad或计算机后面做东西肯定会更有趣,但是如果我想让自己的作品产生影响,我需要的桌子比桌子还大,这意味着要做的事情超出了我的舒适范围。 现在,实际上,这样做只会帮助我在自己喜欢的事情上做得更好,因此接受它并不难。

Thanks for reading! 🙏

谢谢阅读! 🙏

Since you’re here, my name is José Torre and I’m just a design loving designer born in Portugal, working & living in Canada.Nowadays I consider myself one of the lucky ones. I love my job and the company I work for is actually incredible, but since it wasn’t a straight path to get here I thought I would share some insights I’ve gather along the way.

既然你在这里,我的名字叫何塞·托雷(JoséTorre),我是一位热爱设计的设计师,出生于葡萄牙,在加拿大工作和生活。如今,我认为自己是幸运的人之一。 我热爱我的工作,而我所工作的公司实际上是令人难以置信的,但是由于这不是到达这里的直路,我想我会分享我在此过程中收集到的一些见解。

If you feel like talking, connecting or just want to see what I’m up to, you can find me on Twitter, LinkedIn, and even Instagram.
