Summertime is here!

Hello Designers,
Congratulations — you made it through another school year! Summertime is officially here, the sun is out, and it's officially warmer than freezing temperature.  Let's hope it stays that way for a while! As we head into the summer months, there is a lot that will be happening in Minneapolis.  As I plan to work at Schneider Electric this summer doing UI/UX design, it is an exhilarating yet nerve-wracking thought.  Going into an internship, working with people much more experienced than I am, is something that always comes with a sense of intimidation.  However, I am excited to get to improve as a designer, learning a lot from experienced designers, and the work environment at a company.  This summer, myself and quite a few of my fellow product design friends plan to improve our sketching abilities by doing something called "one sketch a day."  This tactic makes sure you stay on your feet, and actually sketch once a day!  Anybody who is interested should totally do it as well, it'll help improve your sketching dramatically!  Have a wonderful summer designers.

Until next time,
Sarah
