So I have been a member of this forum for a long time but haven’t posted in over 2 years!
So, I work as a freelance graphic designer and a couple of years ago I undertook this great course by Dr. David Travis, that I’m sure you’re familiar with: https://www.udemy.com/course/ultimate-guide-to-ux/ I then went on to take the Foundation User Experience exam…and passed!
After that, life got a bit hectic. My graphic design work picked up suddenly, and I decided to move in with my boyfriend and do up our new home. So my plans for putting together a UX portfolio and apply for UI/UX design roles got put on the back burner.
Until now! Lockdown in the UK has started and my graphic design freelance work has dried up. I don’t want to waste this time I now have free, or get sucked into feeling low and unmotivated. So I think now is the right time to come back to my UI/UX learning again
Is there anyone on the forum in the same or similar boat as me?
I’m also looking for live briefs to work on at the moment, as I know I will be more motivated to finish projects if they are in ‘real life’. I’m happy to work on them for free, and I’m sure I came across a website in the past which listed unpaid briefs, but I can’t remember what it was called…can anyone help jog my memory?
I hope you are all well and staying safe in the midst of this crisis! Good to reconnect with you all again!
All the best,
