i’m Erwin prasetyo Professional UI/UX Designer , WordPress Expert & UI/UX Curator from Indonesia.
My father had worked at Kompas Gramedia (one of big media in Indonesia) and My Brother worked as Graphic Designer in Architecture Agency, So you can say , I have influenced from My Father and Brother, and actually My Brother had suggested me for learn design in LPKT Gramedia. After 2 years learn design at LPKT Gramedia, i continue learn design at Faculty of Design University Mercu Buana in West Jakarta.
Graduate from the Faculty of Design University Mercu Buana, graduated cum laude (3.6 of 4.0), made me more confident and ready to build and visualize your brand /products into Market.
After 5 years work as web designer, Now i more focus as UI Designer since it is more general than web designer, same situation but in different implementation. In 2014 with friends of mine we make Parenting App Ortu, submit it at IDEABOX (Startup Event supported by Indosat) and became finalist.
Universities don’t teach us UI design. Most university courses only teach us theory and sometimes teach us how to use design tools like AdobeSuite. I learn more about UI Design from practice, do some work and read some article in medium.com . Also i have to train my eye to see good design and bad design and to identify strengths and weaknesses in designs.
There are tons of design tools out there, but off course you don’t need to know all of them. Get to know the best ones out there, choose your favorites and stay updated with the newest features and trends. Here my favorite tools
- Adobe XD for interface design and prototyping
- Affinity Design and Adobe Illustrator for make some vector design
- Marvel App for making mockups interactive
- Some Paper, Pen and Sticky Note
Make reading design news and blog an everyday habit. There are millions of articles available online for us to discover about new trends, use cases and tutorials. All we have to do is find them. There’s nothing better than learning from other people’s experiences.
