Disclaimer: This presentation has nothing to do with the movie ‘50 shades of grey’ please do not misinterpret.
Why the title is so personal; why should I share my experience about my design career?
Before I let you know the answer you should know little things about me, I would love to introduce myself as an engineering graduate; yes an engineer who engineered himself as a designer. I don’t have design degree I’m a self-taught designer and I don’t settle in learning new things because I don’t have that black hat with a tassel which every degree holder has.
How many of you feel that you’re an engineer and you are struggling to chase your dreams?
Coming back to the title; this presentation is so personal because it will make you relate yourself and you can see some of your shades in me.
I was not so confident that I will become a designer, I was a coward and introvert person who couldn’t take a brave decision or speak or attend any meetups/debates.
So what changed me?
A movie, yes you heard it right; can you believe a movie called 3 idiots have given me the courage to become what I want? but that was the main reason who I’m today.
Sometimes we all need is an inspiration or a push and I believe inspiration can come in any medium.
I would like to quote a line from a movie 3 idiots which turned my life upside down.
Rancho: “Pursue excellence, and success will follow”
These words became my mantra.
In this presentation, each shade refers to thoughts.
Shades = Thoughts
