    I'm not buying these 'stay and be part of the change' comments. And the ones that are suggesting that by doing this you're 'running away' from issues. No. You are refusing to support an a toxic environment. It is not the onus of the victim to educate others. It's a real shame to see these types of responses. I've foind DN to be very similar, and agree. Do you have Twitter? It's a good place to find community. Similar issues but a much larger community looking at those issues instead of offering the same suggestions as above.

    For the record, I'm a non-binary designer.

  • Posted to Is it just me or has Accessibility been taken much more seriously lately?, Jul 20, 2017

    There's a wider understanding of UX as well as HCD. Accessibility is very important when it comes to those things. Has to be taken seriously, in my opinion, to make a good product.

    Wake up. Smoke. Freshen up. Dress. Commute. Coffee. Smoke. Emails. Read work priorities. Stand up. Work.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Headshot on my resume? , Mar 07, 2017

    I think showing your personality is important, but headshots are kind of naff. Your resume should be able todisplay who you are and what you do without that. In your interview is where you really want to translate your skills and who you are.

  • Posted to How many of you (designers) have relevant education?, Mar 07, 2017

    There's plently of opportunity to learn about the field in Melbourne. I've done a degree in Visual Communication (Design), a Cert IV in Design and a User Experience Design course with General Assembly. My degree included subjects related to illustration, typography, multimedia design and print design.

    I'm a product designer nowdays, with skills and knowledge in UX and UI, as well as being an illustrator.

    I'd say 70% of my skills are self-taught, however.

    Agree. Overlapping them is a sin.

    Having said that I just recently took all the stickers off mine.
