The art becomes the artist

This past week I redesigned my website. I’ve done this a few times in the past year, and I think this design is the most representative of who I am as a designer.

It’s built to allow for growth. I’m new to the field and I don’t know what my future holds, but I want a central place that feels like a home for my things online. And this is the most my website has felt like me.

I’m embracing the concept of incrementally correct websites and hope to iterate slowly over time. No more big redesigns. Continual practice is how I learned design in the first place, and I’m just getting started.

From now on, I’d like to focus on doing the work. I’m hungry to improve my craft, and I’ve come up with a schedule to engage in more deliberate practice. I think I’ve done well so far, but more structure is going to increase the pace at which I grow.

Follow this blog to see my progression, and please get in touch if you’d like to chat. I’m in sponge-mode and looking to learn anything and everything I can.

Here’s Rolling into One by Jordan Rakei so you can catch some of the good vibes I’m feeling!
