I’ve been using Figma as my playground this week to create some prototypes and idea concepts. It’s been enriching to go back to designing; the origin of my development career. If not for design, I wouldn’t be coding today.
Something I’m learning on a personal level is that creativity requires courage; putting ourselves out there. Over recent months, I’ve lacked the willingness to be vulnerable (for a plethora of reasons) and it has meant that I haven’t been willing to be courageous, to take a chance. Using this week to get back to something as simple as design has opened the door to vulnerability and with it, gratitude.
