ADVANCE DESIGN 22 JANUARY

Line Goes Up is a must watch to understand the obstacles the NFT scene must overcome to be considered a legitimate economy to participate in.

This month, I am completing two interaction design portfolio pieces: Fascist Network and UTXO Land. In addition to getting those projects online, I  will increase my writing efforts, working on the numerous blog prompts I began last year. To accomplish this goal, I have set aside specific time for the process of writing. Concluding my blog on repositioning from motion to visual, interaction and design strategy will be my first focus.
