237: Our growth as designers in 2021

In our last episode of 2021 we reflect on our growth as designers this year. We chat about the new skills we’ve learned, our achievements and how our expectations for the year changed as the months passed.

key takeaways

2021 turned out to be a year of many changes. Taking some time to reflect on your work over the past year before taking a break over the holidays is time well spent, and will help you to start afresh in 2022. Can you bring the mentality of a ‘fresh start’ into the new year?

You don’t have to switch company, change job or get a promotion to grow as a designer. You can experience growth in your current role. Ask yourself what you are most proud of this year, how can you build on this growth in 2022?

When you are making decisions that might alter the course of your career, consider both the long and short term consequences.
