I’m actually super into VR. It really helps tune out all the other stuff people keep whining about. Why care about people dying? When you can strap a box to your head and fly in a virtual world? The VR community is one of the nicest and most supportive out there, we don’t like discussing negative news like police brutality, climate change etc. We like keeping the personal and political separate. More generic lines about what I did and didn’t do, until I realise I’ve used this line before. Which causes me to abruptly stop.
I had no user testing budget, so I just observed my friends and family using the product.
I’ve conveniently ignored all the contrasting evidence we found in this process, so that I can narrate a better story.
I learnt that I’m really fast at solving conflicts. During a crit session, when my teammate “thought” there was a mistake in my design, i simply told him “Impossible. You must be looking at it wrong”
You and I both know, this reach out form is just a formality, because if you’re anything like me... you’re gonna compare yourself to other people's portfolios, rethink all your life decisions and then sink into a depressive slump. Congratulations! You now equate your self-worth to your work 🤡
