For me, this blog serves several purposes.
At the most basic level, it is a place for me to collection my thoughts throughout this design process. And I hope the act of collecting and organizing these ideas will help me refine my thinking and force me forwards toward my goal.
I also hope that this blog will also serve as a process log of sorts, chronically my journey and the steps forward (and backward) I take on this projects. Process plays an important role for me. Not only are many Design Thinking processes meant to help stimulate and explore design options and directions, but they ultimate serve the purpose of pushing you to a better result. I’m sure I’ll write more about process later. Recording this log is also a way for me to document and share my thought processes and workflow, which I believe says more about me than any final design or product.
Infographic resumes seem to be becoming a more popular trend, though until recently I had little idea of their existence. It wasn’t until I ran across this image on another designer’s website that I even began to think of resumes as visual.
So I should give credit to Gavin Worth for sparking the idea within me of trying to represent myself more visually. Still, it took some time for the idea to sink in, partially because I hadn’t yet decided to seek out a new job.
