Episode #20
How do I become a designer?


This is my old style of podcast before I drastically changed the style of it. This was when I was making educational and information podcasts about design, marketing and business. Feel free to listen to it, but my new style of podcast started from Episode 80.

I was asked by Shaun to answer “what’s the best route into industry for noobies?”. I decided to formalise that question a little bit into “How do I become a designer?”. In it, I talk about the attitude you’ll need to become a designer.
