When we talk about the most exciting part of Superawesome to me personally, two things come to mind:
Whenever there’s mutual respect and appreciation among colleagues, team members and management produces great results and work that will satisfy our client’s needs and bring them a couple of steps closer to where they aim to be. Whenever this happens, I can say I feel successful at what I’m doing, and this goes for any type of work, including my current position.
I tend to communicate clearly and over-explain things. The process of getting to the solution you’re presenting is, more often than not, more important than the solution itself, so it’s always a good idea to work on your presentation skills and put them to work when presenting your concepts to a client or a stakeholder. I believe this is probably one of the most effective ways of building trust.
The truth is – once you get to this point, you’ll be getting fewer questions about the design decisions that you’re making on a daily basis because they will know you’ve thought this through, and they’ll know you’ve put a decent amount of effort into coming up with the best solution for the problem at hand.
I’ve done a lot of different things in my life. From construction work and agriculture to waiting tables, bartending, and scooping ice-cream. It’s hard to say they were unusual, so I’ll pick the most interesting one — I spent two summer seasons working at a hotel in Alaska, where I had a group of 15 people from different parts of the world under my supervision as a Housekeeping Assistant Manager. I’ll never forget how much the whole experience meant to me, how much it taught me, and how many beautiful places I got to see during my time there.
Well aware of how weird this may sound, I’ll say – my father. Fathers are responsible for making decisions that have a direct impact on everyone around them. The thought process behind making decisions as a father is what interests me.
If we’re talking about someone from the design world, that would probably be Aaron James Draplin. He is an American graphic designer, author, and entrepreneur based in Portland, Oregon. He’s been an inspiration to me throughout my design journey so far, and one of the main reasons I decided to do what I do right now.
I feel pretty comfortable designing interfaces and experiences, and I believe that’s going to continue being my main area of focus in the years to come, but since there are other disciplines and areas I’m interested in when it comes to design and creativity – such as animation and motion graphics – I wouldn’t mind sitting in Aleksandar’s chair for a day or two, but before that, I’d have to brush up on my After Effects skills.
