Welcome to Design Somethin’ (or DS for short).
Just in case you don’t know who I am or what I’m doing here’s the 411. My name is Inder Nagra and DS is my little 365-design project. Kind of like the photography-based 365-projects you see on Flickr, my goal is to design something new everyday for the next 365 days. And to put a little twist on things, I’m gonna have a weekly theme and a time limit 2 hours per design.
Don’t hate if you don’t see a post from me every day. Life will be busy and I may have to upload stuff in bunches. I will design something 365 times in the next 365 days, guarantee it.
Why am I doing this?
The biggest reason is to keep my skills sharp as hell (can hell even be sharp?)! Full-time and freelance work is great but sometimes I feel like I’m designing the same thing over and over again. I’m starting DS to flex my design muscle. If I design something new everyday, I hope I’ll keep my finger on the creative pulse and stay up-to-date with new design techniques, styles, and theories. And who knows, maybe someone will see this little project and give me a shot at the big times.
Who am I?
I’m a pretty simple dude. I live in a suburb near Vancouver (Go Canucks! Go). I have a Bachelor of Science in Interactive Arts and Technology from SFU. I work full-time as a multimedia designer and do a little freelancing on the side. I play and watch sports and do the gym thang.
Life’s pretty busy and, with this DS project, it’s about to get busier. But I’m up for the challenge.
Follow me on Twitter and Facebook. If you like DS, share it around. If you think it sucks, let me know why you think it sucks. Have an idea for a theme, style or topic? Love to hear from you. Feedback is always appreciated. So let me know what you really think!
