Today, I’m going to tell you tough things about your side project. In other words, I’m going to tell you why you still do not have one.
I’m a Creative Director in Designmodo and I make stunning web designs. For a designer, it’s very difficult to develop any side project if you have zero coding experience. I can’t really build things. It’s easy for me to make a website in Sketch, but there is no way to see it in person without a help of a developer. I can’t get around that for a long time. The Universe decided that I was born as a designer, and all I need to do is to design things, but not to build them. It doesn’t sound fair, right?
About a year ago, I moved to Los Angeles. There are no seasons in California, except for summer, and every day is pretty the same - summer all the time, bright sun and blue sky. When there are no seasons, you can’t think “seasonally” - you don’t worry about cold winter, or preparing for the Christmas holidays; you don’t wait for the summer the next half of the year; you don’t have to waste your time picking and buying shoes, jacket, and coat for autumn; you just forget about it.
