What is MAITOGRAPHY&DESIGN?

MAITOGRAPHY&DESIGN is a website that’s dedicated to working with both Photography, and Design. I photograph volunteering events in the Chicagoland area, and am currently self learning the basics of design for both User Experience and User Interface Design.

About

After pursuing a career in the medical field for most of my life, I decided back in April of last year, that I needed a change of pace and applied to an immersion boot camp for User Experience and User Interface Design. I don’t have a Design background, so it was a challenge for me to complete the basics of design on time. Now that I have been dedicating more time to learning UX/UI design, I feel more confident in my creative skills and I am planning on reapplying to the immersion boot camp. How does Photography fall into learning design? For as long as I can remember, Photography has been a hobby of mine. I have always enjoyed taking pictures of just about anything. On a recent trip to Seattle, the friend I was visiting encouraged me to pursue Photography. Becoming a Photographer was not something I had considered doing, but I gave it a try to realize that I truly enjoy doing it. I hope that I can incorporate my Photography into my designs in future projects.
