ADVANCE DESIGN 22 APRIL

May 3, 2022

Freelancing, absorbing product teachings and realizing the nature of the society has brought me closer to understanding the designer’s place in it. What is the role of the designer in business and how does the designer best serve business goals? I was not speaking to my potential clients, rather I was describing a non-unique skill set. Revising my positioning to visual designer building impactful user experiences that elevate brands and compel customers to buy is an attempt to speak directly to the capitalist.

The immensity of the Fascist Network is evident. In order to understand our history, the Network will need to be a collaborative effort. I am now thinking about how I can take the network from a personal project to a full-fledged product in the style of Figma, CablesGL and NodesIO.
