A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

During the Covid lockdown, I embraced the chance to explore my passion for graphic design after years of pursuing engineering. Now, as a UI/UX designer at Mitsogo, I am fortunate to collaborate with a team of talented artists who mentor and inspire me.

A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

When the world was on lockdown, and we were all confined to our homes, I found myself with more time than I knew what to do with. Like so many of us, I initially wasted it binge-watching Netflix and playing Fortnite. However, I soon realized that I was given a unique opportunity to finally follow the career I wanted for myself – graphic designing. I have always enjoyed designing and showing people my work. Even as a student, I used to design posters for events in both my school and college. Yet still, like so many of us, I took a degree in engineering after high school, with nary an idea of what I would do with it. So, when the world went into lockdown, I took that chance to really learn to design. I took many online courses and certifications, and by the time the lockdown got lifted, I had a pretty solid idea of designing.  

My efforts paid off when I got a job as the UI/UX designer at Mitsogo. When I applied for the job, they asked me why an engineering graduate wanted a job in designing. As they saw my passion for it, they immediately offered me the role. Books and courses can only teach you so much. It often falls short in the light of real-life experience. At Mitsogo, I am lucky to be mentored by a team of exceptional artists. Under their guidance, I understood more about designing in a few months than what I had learned in a whole year alone.   

My day usually starts with a good cup of joe. From there, I browse through a few websites which keep me updated on the latest trends and give me inspiration for new ideas. This is my morning routine, which I never break. Then, I start working. When you are part of the design team, you are a part of every other team in the company. Apart from UI designing, everyone from human resources to public relations sends us content to make posters, videos and infographics. We even collaborate in designing company merch. Therefore, there is never a shortage of work for a designer.  

My favorite part of the job is presenting my work. An artist is always glad to hear that his work is appreciated. That is not to say that I don’t receive any criticism. However, my seniors and managers have always taken a constructive approach when I make mistakes, and that has made all the difference. A day in the life of a designer is often hectic and filled with deadlines. Fortunately, as someone wise once said, if you love what you do, you will never work a single day in your life.
