This is a story of a young designer aiming to make a difference. I’ve always been interested in design: I started doing graphic design as a hobby, because I am passionate about it, and turn it into a career in 2014. In 2016 I found out about this thing called “UX” and I realised I had finally found the thing I have been looking for. I want to be able to design and build products that really make an impact on the world.
Design for Good
I truly believe Design is all about Innovation.
My dream is to become a renowned UX designer and apply Design Thinking to solve social problems. The market is full of good designers that work on FinTech products or food delivery apps, or apps that make you fit, and so on. This makes me think we are designing for what works better on the market right now, what generates more money, and we seem to be disconnected from social problems: what about people in real need? Think about homeless, access to healthcare, race & gender equality, immigration...
What I need
To achieve my dream what I really need is the User Experience Design Immersive course: a 10-week full-time course that will give me all the tools I need to start making a change. But in order to do that, I have to raise £9,000 for the course fees. Please help me achieve my dream job!
