I'm Bilal, a 22 year old self-taught designer, who studied Computer Science and Engineering. After 4 years of that, I realised I wanted to be a Designer. Because I love it, also because have a natural flair for it.
So after graduation, I've been working as a Interaction Designer for over a year now. You can check out my portfolio at http://bil.al
I've learned a lot by working on lot of projects. But I'm now wondering if I need a formal design education?
Im guessing that in a design school, there'll be - Case Studies - Meeting renowned design thinkers - Having a design-healthy network, etc. As an individual to grow as a designer, I feel these are quite important too.
So, is design education the way forward? If yes, please recommend some good schools. There are ton of schools out there and I don't know where to go.
P.S Thanks for taking the time to read this. A bitcoin each for your thoughts. :P
