If you could write something on the loading screen of all design tools, so all designers can see it, what would it be?

Have you considered an alternative career?

Quote

Did you study design, or are you self taught? And how did that path influence your work style?

I studied industrial design. 80% useless to what I've been doing my entire career. The remaining useful 20% is that it introduced me to the design world at large and I met likeminded people. Basically, I'm self-taught on most of the things I know.

Remote collaboration

With all the current experience, what would you tell yourself when you were just starting out?

Don't be stuck with a company for too long if you don't clearly see the path ahead.

What do you think is the biggest problem in the design industry right now and how can it be fixed?

The lack of integrity too many designers in Silicon Valley have. The ones working in some big tech companies are aware that their work in having a bad impact on a global scale, but they love their juicy salaries too much. I don't think there's a solution, honestly. Sadly, it's the human nature.
