Why did you decide to work in the tech industry?
I have always been interested in arts and was fascinated by how things work. I could not choose between them, as I felt both aesthetics and technology were equally important. After some research, I found the perfect match where form and function met and studied industrial design engineering.
How can you describe your current role? What’s your responsibility area?
Before my current role, I worked in the manufacturing and telecommunication sectors, and now I am supporting various industries visually as a Graphic Designer. Recently I have been working on creating technical illustrations for an automotive customer, video editing, print, and web materials. Our team also designs motion graphics and 3D animations, and we often get involved in each other’s work by giving feedback or brainstorming together. This diversity of projects and design fields is the most inspiring environment I could wish for. I love to find solutions where we cannot use words and our imagery needs to speak instead.
What career plans do you have for the future, and how do you see your further professional development?
I have just finished a 3D Generalist school, where my main focus was on 3D modeling and animation. I think this is a great addition to my CAD and surface modeling experience, and I cannot wait to start working on new projects within this area. However, since CGI is developing rapidly, I think there will still be plenty of new things to learn in the future.
What can you advise for women just entering the tech?
To trust themselves and not be afraid of sharing their thoughts and opinions. The best conversations and ideas are born from challenging different points of view. Be honest and not be scared to ask for help from colleagues with more experience whenever in doubt. Keep the passion they started their career with and never stop being curious.
