Hi there! I’m Ban, and I’m a professional web designer. I have a master’s degree in Web Design out of Santa Clara University. I know from personal experience that it can be difficult to find good sources of information and healthy discussions in regards to web design. I’ve searched the web far and wide and decided to make my own contribution to the cause by starting a specialized blog on the matter of web design and related subjects.
I started this blog with the intent to share my experiences with colleagues and people interested in pursuing web design (or any other kind of design for that matter). While some of us have already established ourselves on the job market, others are only starting to come to terms with web design as it is. My job here will be to share practical and theoretical tips and experiences I came across during my career so far.
I mainly cover topics that concern creativity, web design as well as some college tips that I picked up in my years spent at Santa Clara. Creativity is something we all struggle with on a daily basis, so I believe that talking about it helps a lot. We will cover tips and discussions on how to be more creative in your work, as well as how to apply that creativity to practical projects.
As a web designer, I have insight into layout design as well as some backdoor coding required to make a functional website. While I’m no web design guru, I consider myself competent enough to state my opinions and pass some knowledge down to people who need it. Lastly, I plan on covering some college tips for people still studying about web design or any design profession for that matter. I struggled with coming to grips with reality as the graduation day was coming closer, so we will also cover the questions of how viable it is to study design and actually get hired afterwards.
I hope you find what you are looking for on this blog. This is a passion project of mine and I will do my best to keep you up to date with latest trends and personal opinions. Thank you for your time and please spread the word to your design colleagues about that one interesting blog you just came across – it would mean the world to me.
