“Immediately I realized the way I’ll approach design projects is going to have to be different from how I approach a project for class. I can’t just hop on Google and start brainstorming with images because this is the real world here and not a classroom. I’m noticing more than anything else, that while in school we play the role of both the developer and the designer, it seems that in the industry is very much not the case and that the roles are split between two parties.”
