I am a front-end web developer and I like design a lot, as matter of fact - lately, I am focusing more on UX/UI design to create top-notch products for my clients.
Coming from coding background, I find myself struggling a bit with design patterns and creativity for new concepts. Some clients come to me and simply just ask for a website without any idea of what they want or maybe just a reference to 1 or 2 sites. They provide me with only images and expect me to come up with a beautiful and functioning website. Although, I get inspirations from looking online and following a lot of designs articles but still, I lack the ability or struggle to come up with new concept and design on my own.
So my question is:
- How can be creative for new concepts of designs
- How do I learn to create unique designs
- Is it hard to learn a bit of graphics just to put some effects to my designs
I am open to any ideas and suggestions, thanks a lot in advance.
