Google UX Design Certificate

“The low-cost design certificate is well worth considering for those looking to break into the user experience (UX) design job market—or anyone curious about the overarching concept of UX design.”

Dari of Darius Design recently completed the 7 month, Google UX Design course just to clarify and brush up. She has been in the industry for over 20 years. It was a great way to refine ideas and processes. And it is very useful, if you wish to break into this field. It is very comprehensive. Learn the tools Figma and Adobe XD. Well worth the time and small amount of money. Highly recommended.

Long Live Degenerative Art

“All the achievements of contemporary artistic genius from Cézanne to Picasso — the product of the ultimate in freedom, strength and human feeling – have been received with insults and repression. We believe that it is mere idiocy and folly to reduce modern art, as some desire, to a fanaticism for any particular religion, race or nation.”

“These were the searing words of a group of 37 Cairo-based artists and thinkers known as Art and Liberty in their manifesto ‘Long Live Degenerate Art’ (1938). At the time, totalitarianism and repression was on the rise across Europe.”
