Over the weekend, I was cleaning and organizing my Dropbox files and came across this fun gem from my grad school days. It was a quick, in-class, brainstorming project where we broke into groups of 3 or 4 people, and had to come up with, and tell a story using only images. And those images could only be created using construction paper, scissors, and a glue stick.
Spoiler alert: I don’t.
But let’s get real here. I do have a lot going on. I have a busy job, a side business, lots of hobbies/interests, 4 dogs, 1 preschooler, a husband who travels for work, and a partridge in a pear tree. I also run and attend yoga, F45, and Orangetheory classes - often I work out twice a day.
I have an MFA in merchandising and I get asked the question of how it relates to my current career semi-frequently. For many people, there's a disconnect between merchandising and UX, but not for me.
What better way to kick off my field notes here on ChristineEsoldo.Design than with a post about my design philosophy? This philosophy permeates everything I do - how I work, the companies I work for, where I work (physical location), the tools I use, how I communicate, and most of all, how I get things done.
