It’s Friday, and here we are with a new Campfire 🔥 edition sent by truly yours, Alex Dovhyi. Each week I answer questions from readers about design, freelancing, building skills, switching careers, and anything else that makes you scratch your mind.
This week's question is... 🥁

Learning to code is invaluable if you want to be an outstanding designer.
I chose to study computer science at university because it completely transforms your thinking.

Code can be challenging, but it never hurts to learn. Applying a computer science mindset to design helped me become a better designer, and learning to code can help you do the same.
