I have a background in science education, always having a love for coloring but a distaste for drawing due to my lack of patience. However, I pursued a bachelor's degree in Graphic Design, which proved to be a challenging endeavor. Being part of an art school, the emphasis on drawing skills made me doubt my potential as a designer. I even faced discouragement from some teachers who suggested I quit the program.
But several years later, I find myself as the only one from my graduating class who is currently working as a designer. While a few others are freelancing, I have secured a position in a multinational company.
The field of design varies greatly, with certain areas requiring strong drawing skills, such as technical drawing for packaging or advertising. However, in my case, specializing in branding and web design, I have discovered that my lack of drawing abilities is not a hindrance at all. One can even focus on User Experience, emphasizing the process and concepts, and let others handle the artistic aspect. Ultimately, it all depends on your chosen path and priorities in design.
