⚡️ How To Start Your Career As A Web 3.0 Designer
🚀 Step 1: Learn, Learn, And Learn
Get a grasp of the crucial concepts before you start exploring the web3 space. Being well-versed with new definitions i.e. DeFi, Gas, Mint, etc. will give you a bit more context and will make the verbiage feel less foreign. Once you have a solid grasp of the blockchain from a design standpoint, begin learning about the present ecosystem. Find out about the pioneers in the various sectors of this industry.
🚀 Step 2: Leverage Your Position As A Newcomer
When using web3 items for the first time, make notes. Which language do you find challenging? What flows don't naturally make sense? You will rapidly forget how little you first understood as your familiarity with the web3 space and vocabulary increases.
🚀 Step 3: Switch To User Oriented Design Approach
Designing for a Web 2.0 project is a whole lot different from designing case studies in Web 3.0. Utilising metaphors and mental models that people are already familiar with from Web 2.0 is one way to do make users feel secure as they are interact with a well-known workflow.
📈 Design Career Ladders
Examples, templates, titles, and attributes from 20+ companies, including Meta, LinkedIn, Intercom, Buzzfeed, Figma, and many more.
Design career ladders are largely inaccessible. Every company overthinks and comes up with something new, further confusing the product/UX design role. Career ladders being accessible can help immensely help individuals get hired/promoted, and understand their career path.
