Hi @AJ&Smart , I'm just getting started on Product designing. I'm actually learning Product design so I can be very skilled in Bag Designing (Backpacks specifically) I started An African fashion accessory Brand (Jolis Brand) and I intend to create much quality and lovely Products with this skill. I would love if u can suggest books, maybe videos and probably heroes/mentors who could help me visualize and make this dream a reality. Thanks❤🙏

So basically.... there isnt really a program in uni or college called product design, because most are self taught?

Good content, but as a UX designers you should (Must, I really tempted to use this strong statement) be very detailed in everything. I am talking about the Penis, which pointed on your shoulder from the painting behind you. Is this intentional choice, or something else? Someone can really skip this video just because of it and definitely will not share it. Other than that good video. Regards

Hey we hear ya, and it's always divisive advice, but even if it's a small project for a friend or family member, the dividends from being able to show some real world design solutions will be beneficial at the very start!

I have 'a controversial' question (hypothetical). Senario: Designer Joe has 7-10 years as a graphic designer-turned senior designer-turned art director, now wants to get an entry level position as a UXer...ahem..'product designer'... he's still paying off design/university debt... so he has to get unpaid work? Let's drop more info on Joe. He's taken some UX courses at a community college (not $10000 for 10 week general assembly), he's been to 15-20 meetups, and has studied the in and outs of UX design process from the popular UX books, and medium blogs and podcasts. He has 'bills' and has a family to 'support' and he's in his mid to late 30's. Now, let's turn turn the tables... you being in Joe's position, what would you do? Yes, he has a portfolio with 2-3 case studies that he's 'interated' at least 4-6 times based on feedback from users... AND.. most importantly, he knows the UX design process AND understands it's about solving the NEEDS of the user. OHHHH..let us not forget he's passionate. Can he still get some paid work (he's not asking for the world of a salary, just basic starting salary)? What would you do?

@giovanni martorella good luck and I mean it. Noone from AJ and smart are replying, so I'm assuming that it's a .05-2% chance of getting a 'paid' entry level UX design job. Let me know if you find 'paid' entry level UX or paid internship.
giovanni martorella
Good question, im currently in a area where i studied for 4 months on my own. Gathering amazing resources and using them to learn UX design. Now im just trying to find any entry level position or internship for UX design. Im based in New York.

UI and UX design is not Product Design, Product Design is more physical (chairs, phone, stationery, etc...). It is a part but it would be more correct to call the discipline you're referring to as Digital Product Design.
Luke Frahn

You're spot on. Industrial Design was renamed 'Product Design' to help people better understand what it is, then a heap of Software and Service Design people hijacked the term for no apparent reason. As an Industrial Designer this really ticks me off - designing physical and digital products are VERY different.
AJ&Smart 5 aylar önce
Hey, perhaps a fair point in terms of the title, but we take our leads from the major tech companies and their job ads / hiring criteria and 'Product Designer' is now a very common job title in the Tech sector. Hope it wasn't misleading in this instance though! We'll change it up in future!

Who would I like to work for or with? You listed a few people that would be super amazing like Chris Do at the futur or Blind, Ran Segall of Flux, and of course Brittni & Jonathan at AJ&Smart. As I research frameworks of strategy I am finding groups like yours that is more of a collective than an agency and I am really liking that structure & philosophy. Product design has come a long way since the waterfall method.

Hi, Britney. I'm Winnie who is dreaming to be UX designer(or product designer) at Silicon Balley one day, but I was definitely no idea how to start to be:( And I found this video!! Thanks for telling almost everything you know about how to study and entering the product design field. This is really helpful for me. Hope we could meet as UX designer! and I will look forward your video:) * Reply to your question at last: I hope my product which I designed will solve social problem no matter it's big or small. The product will be app or web, actually, I can't assure which kind of it will be, but hope one day I could make my own product to solve it.

My dream product design job would be being part of self-sustainable design solutions for the future. Products and solutions that help build an organic self-sustainable infrastructure for nations so that development need not be at the expense of natural resources. But find ways to harness the energy around and apply eco-friendly solutions. Design + Technology + Nature.

in the portfolio should we include the whole app functionality or can it be just showcases?
AJ&Smart 8 aylar önce
We'd always recommend that showing the process, concept and planning, and being able to talk through why you did this, why it works, and how it provides a solution, is much more important than showing a fully polished prototype, but if you're able to do both then that's a bonus too! hope that helps!

YOOOOUUUU ROOOOOCK!!! I'm hooking up with some friends to make a company that mixes product design and Growth Hacking for startups, so a mix of you guys and Growth Tripe. You have really inspired ,and still do, so much.... I am glad though that I have a formal design masters degree behind me to have that process really forced in to my bones. Keep on spitting those videos out :)
