1. YOU HAVE TO BE ALWAYS UP TO DATE
This profession includes constant knowing The patterns change every year and if you are not up to date, your designs run the risk of being obsoleted (for instance, in website design the slider has stopped to be the king of the Home to make way for the video).
This profession involves continuous learning.
Software application and technology also develop quickly and as designers we need to learn how to handle the brand-new tools. Each time Adobe updates Photoshop or Illustrator, we have to update to enhance its resources. If a brand-new tool bursts into force (like Sketch), we must expand our understanding. Style is a living and altering discipline.
