I don't know how I found this video, but I feel like students tend to listen to tutors and shy away from the industry. I feel like the best way to learn is to research like a mad man into the industry and seeing designers so mature makes me happy. I feel like I could learn a lot from this guy. It is also interesting to hear someone else's opinion. Design is everything.
"People hired me and I did what I wanted to do and they were horrified, which left me saying but, but, but..."
Something with helps me is that I'm just starting and designers get it wrong, it sounds stupid.
