The book has been broken down into 11 main sections, each section will talk about the possibilities of what a beginner designer might face in their careers and how to prepare, overcome and avoid such mistakes and obstacles.
Practice makes perfect
Reading in-depth books, going through hours of online courses, and spending tons of money on bootcamps doesn’t get you the same experience as sitting home and practicing over and over again using your favorite tools, Sketch or Figma.
Copy with good intentions
Practice practice practice! Practice by taking someone else’s work and copy it one-on-one. Don’t add anything, don’t take out anything. Copy it as is, and do it many times over and over again with other artwork (don’t plagiarize and steal!)
Find a mentor
This is important, a good mentor will teach you all the ins-and-outs and all the “unwritten” rules of design. Find a kick-ass designer and follow their work, work with them for free if needed, read their tweets and blogs and apply their concepts in your work.
