In any career it's good to have goals set. Knowing where we want to go helps us make plans and gives us a better sense of what we should learn and how to do it. However, in programming it is not always so easy to find a model to be inspired by, as there are few programmers who actually demonstrate their development process.
Although there are many tutorials, in the most diverse fremeworks, there is still a lack of in-depth content on creative and development processes that transcend technology. Fortunately for English speakers and web designers, today I bring someone who inspires me and can inspire you too.
maisyleigh talks about various subjects in her videos and shows her development process, but in general, she discusses how to find inspiration to make unique sites. However the most important is in the way she conveys her ideas, at the end of a video, even if you are not a web designer, you will feel inspired to program.
However if you are really looking to be a web designer maisyleigh's content is a great example of their profession on a spectacular level. If your goal is to change people's lives with your work, expect to receive a class with some videos from this channel.
In my experience, web design is highly valued in the job market, many front-end developers manage to make a website, code, but it is the web designers who make a website unique.
I don't mean that the two professionals should compete, many web-designers, including maisyleigh, also program and do the work of the front-end developer. What I mean is that they are technically different services.
In theory, it's as if the web-designer is an architect and the front-end developer is the engineer. Large companies understand that both are necessary for the effective and rapid development of a given technology.
But the fact is that the market misses web-designers, especially those who also know about the technical part of development.
My Process for App Design, Ideation, & Getting Inspired 🎨 | Software Engineer & UX/UI Designer:
In this video, when talking about the App Design process, she talks about how to find inspiration, I intend to do an article in the near future just with this subject, as I feel it deserves special attention. If you're feeling fine, subscribe to the newsletter and don't miss anything.
Ideation is a concept I learned on this channel, and it's very interesting, especially in the creative process.
Design & Code With Me Ep. 1 - Building My Personal Website | Day Of A Software Engineer & Designer
This video introduces the concept of moodboard, which can be used in any web development project. Your process is easy to follow and at the same time interesting. The final reveal is simple, but it fulfills its purpose.
As this video is older you stilldon't have the notion of something very difficult to be done, but you see the caution.
The feeling that passes and that even a simple site made by a beginner, with careful attention and dedication, in addition to the development of the moodboard can be amazing and with a more professional appearance.
Design & Code With Me Ep. 2 - MySweetChub's Art Portfolio Website | Software Engineer & Designer
consider this the best video to be inspired by web design, it shows what for me is the ideal web-designer besides the creation process mentioned before.
This video works very much like a tutorial for making a website for a client. and designing what will make the system stand out.
If you see her videos, sedo or later you will come across the Mood concept when designing a website. Attention to detail and planning before coding is something we should pay attention to and it yields incredible results. But MOOD has a more complex general idea that I've mentioned in previous posts, but I can't explain it in words better than maisyleigh demonstrates.
