Day 1: How to begin?

29 Jun 2023

Work hours: 3hrs

I haven't really had a concrete agenda or plan for approaching this project yet. It's like starting on a blank page. I do have a few ideas in mind, but they're still quite scattered. I believe the plan will come together later, so for now, I'm diving into the messy bits first.

Today, I spent some time brainstorming and jotting down the things I need to work on or consider further in my sketchbook. It's always helpful to visually map out my thoughts and ideas.

Oh, by the way, I also stumbled upon a great screen recording tool called "Screen Studio" while doing some research.

It seems like it'll come in handy for capturing my design process in the future. I'll definitely give it a try.

If you're curious about how it works, there's a neat 10-minute YouTube video that demonstrates its features. Check it out if you're interested.

While browsing social media platforms for inspiration, I came across a YouTube video where a designer shared his process of designing an award-winning portfolio website. Although it didn't delve into too many specifics, it did emphasize the importance of establishing a strong design concept from the start.

And you know what? It really got me thinking. Everything should begin with a concept—a solid overall vision of what I want to achieve with my website. It's not just about individual features or visuals, but the underlying concept that ties everything together. This realization gives me some direction for the next steps—I need to start building my concept.

At the same time, during one of my random scrolls on Twitter, I stumbled upon this thought-provoking tweet:

It serves as a reminder to value moments of pause, especially in a world that's so focused on efficiency and productivity. It's important to take a step back and appreciate the process, the journey, rather than always rushing towards the end goal.

Well, it's 00:09 now, and I think it's time to call it a day. I've dedicated a solid 4 hours to this project today. Let's continue the work tomorrow.

This kind of reminds me to remember the value of creating moments of pause, especially when we are living in the world driven by efficiency and productivity.

OK. I think I need to call for the end of today. It's 00:09 now. and for today, I totally spent 4 hours on this project. Let's continue to work tomorrow.
