How do you pick a design specialism?
Andy knows he wants a career in design, but doesn't know how to pick a specialism.
Hey, My name’s Andy and I’m about to start my second year at uni studying product design. It’s a 4-year course which provides a sandwich year, which is arriving faster than expected.
I have A levels from college and GCSEs which relate to design and art with standard grades C-Bs. This led to university because of my passion and the advise I got from many friends and teachers.
The question is how do you find your specialism in design? I’ve been looking around and I don’t know which area really suits me. I’ve rolled out the ‘no’s for sure, but it’s the small few which I find hard to pick. I’ve moved from college straight to uni so I’ve haven’t had any real design experience.
I want to get straight into design and enjoy the role and experience of changing the world and what I can achieve, but I’m just lost in picking the right area. Are there any helpful tips or advice?
