A weekly vlog again finally?! (Design work + a DIY haircut!)

THE VLOG IS BACK. Please remember to subscribe if you want to see more: http://bit.ly/1aE5UOT

real talk: I’ve started many vlogs over the past few months and just not finished them. With this vlog right here I feel like I found my love of vlogging again. Nothing much exciting happens. It’s me in my flat working, signing along to music, having a chat and messing around with my hair. But I love that it’s an accurate representation of my life that week!

I’m looking forward to vlogging more in future weeks and sharing more of my life with you 🙂

How (& WHY) to share your unfinished work for feedback!

I know, I know! It’s scary to share work that you know isn’t great yet… but here’s why you should do it, and how to get value from the process!

Please remember to subscribe http://bit.ly/1aE5UOT

Learning how to get used to sharing work that isn’t in a finished state is a vital part of becoming a designer. Getting feedback on work as you go, rather than when you’re ‘finished’ will stop you from going down the wrong path and will vastly improve your design process. In this video i share my top tips for how to have a positive experience when sharing your unfinished work. Hope you enjoy it!

Make sure to complete the mission I give at the end and report back in the comments 🙂
