What Is a Product Designer?
How Do You Become a Product Designer?
What Is One Resource You Recommend for Other Designers?
A valuable resource that I believe all designers need to know about is this documentary Netflix made called “Abstract: The Art of Design”. They got the leading innovating designers in different fields to show people how design impacts all life’s aspects. The best thing about this series is that each designer takes you on their own creative process start to finish when they design something. This is honestly the most beneficial resource I could recommend people because a lot of times people explain the creative process in theoretical terms. However, I for one never benefited that much from that. So, having someone show me what they do when they design something, it gave me whole new insights.
How Did You Transition into Becoming a Product Designer?
Well, I started out as an interior designer. While designing the home or space I’d find myself needing a certain piece to complete the design that I couldn’t find anywhere in the market. So, I started by designing one product and then two and then eventually I decided to make my own line of products. That’s basically how I transitioned into being a product designer.
