What Next?

All right. Wow, you made it to the end. It is a long course. Congratulations, you're here. I'm here. It's pretty amazing. Um, long course to make long course to do. We should both be very proud of ourselves. Uh I want to cover a few little things in this video. Just kind of um, just to kind of wrap up. Ah, where do you go from here? Um It is new me, I've come back to update this video because there's a very important new update in terms of what you should potentially do next. And that is my fig a advanced course. So you've just finished fig essentials fig advanced kind of picks you up from where you are now to carry you through to a more advanced level. So, um yeah, it's, it's gonna build on where we are now and is the next perfect step to go further and all those things that you want to push a bit further. Yeah, so it is advanced, but it's more for taking you to advance. Don't think it's only for advanced people. It's to make you an advanced person, but it starts kind of where we are ...

now So if you're comfortable here, move on to figure advanced as the next step. Um Other bits of software, if you're not ready for figure advanced now is maybe something like there's probably two ways to go. There is learning a bit of html and CS S OK. I've got something called web essentials. So check that course out if you want to do a little bit of introduction to coding. If you haven't done that. Now, it really helps you be able to connect with developers and talk their language. OK? Um And the other one might be if you want to go down the web route, but you don't want to do the code way you want to go no code. Um I've recently created a course called uh webflow Essentials. So check that one out. It's no code quite design related. OK? But still building kind of proper websites. Um Other than that, there might be design stuff you want to cover uh cover that I do. So there's lots of design courses that I've got. There is a Photoshop illustrator in design. Um After effects, Premiere pro uh Lightroom, there's an essentials and an advanced course for all of those as well. So if there's anything you want to get, get started in, update yourself in, go further in, those are the courses to go check out. So those are the little updates other than I've got a new chair. OK? What can happen in a year. I got a new chair and a 3D printer. You can see it back there. Ok, new glasses as well. There you go. That's the update. Done. Lots of things for classes. Um I will return you back to the previous excited. Finish the course, Dan, to explain everything else. I'd like to thank the editors, Jason and Taylor for all their work producing this video series. A lot of work for them. Thank you guys and also to Stephen Butler and his merry band of teaching assistants who are helping you in the comments. You probably already know who's Stephen Butler and the Tas are. So thank you to you guys as well at this stage as well. I'd like to ask you if you enjoyed the course, give it a good review and also probably more importantly is, you know, if you can think of a way of sharing this course with others, any way that you can think of, OK, it helps me grow and allows me to keep doing this. So if there is anything you can do, share with your colleagues, your friends, people, you might know your circle that would be super helpful as well. You can follow me on social medias. You probably already have after all the class files, they'll be here. Yeah. OK. That side. No, that side. OK? These are all my social medias and the other thing you might do is youtube. OK. I've got a youtube channel. And there's a lot of stuff that doesn't get turned into, course, just smaller format stuff that's on my youtube channel. Go subscribe to that, check that out. The next thing I want to talk about is just briefly about the industry, how evolving it is the imposter syndrome and how big that feels. Ok. So the industry is, it's not new, but it's newish in the way it's been applied to a lot of these kind of like even to small businesses, like nobody was doing user experience in small to medium sized businesses and even the large businesses, it was a different flavor. Ok? So if you find things are changing all the time and you feel like, oh, I don't know anything because everything keeps moving around. It is OK. Things that, you know, five years ago was like, this is the way we work and everyone else's fools for not doing it this way is like this year uh like the thing we point at and laugh at and you're like, huh uh remember when we used to do it that way? Like I find that happens a lot in user experience design. Now, in terms of imposter syndrome, there's, you know, like are you a UX designer yet? You know? No, I'm not. I haven't passed the qualification. Ok. Now I give you permission if you are new to this industry. Call yourself a UX designer from today on UX designer, a junior UX designer a bad UX designer, very inexperienced UX designer. That is totally fine. There's no like official qualifications, like becoming a doctor. Ok. There's very little formal education around UX design. There's more appearing. Most of us though are self taught and I guess whether you're getting started at 16 or getting started at 60 or 80. Ok. It doesn't matter like there's no like line to cross. Ok. It's all about getting started deciding for yourself that yes, this is an industry I love, I wanna get amongst it. I'm only at the beginning. Ok? And there's so much to learn and I can't wait. So I guess that is the mentality that how might help you kind of get past the impost imposter syndrome. But imposter syndrome is huge. It's massive like loads of people that you speak to have the fear, ok? It doesn't matter whether you're eight or 80 or ok? Uh I still feel like there is somebody who's gonna come and ask for my papers and drag me away because I'm not a real UX designer. That awkward pause is for when you said 42 you don't look 42 Dan, you look, you're barely 32. That's what you were meant to say there. Alright? Uh That is gonna be the end of the course. Dad jokes over. I hope you enjoyed the course. I really enjoyed making it. I hope you enjoyed viewing it and I hope to see you in another course soon. Bye everyone. Ha da da.
