How to Break Into UX: Preet Singh’s Journey
Photographs by Andrew Pieroni
Though his journey may have started with an engineering degree (and a motorbike), Preet has definitely had some career changes along the way. To help others learn from his own triumphs and missteps, Preet stopped by Miami Ad School to share his story — no filter, no fluff.
“There is no perfect break”
“Speak the language the decision makers understand.”
Having honed his design skills and built a strong network within Toronto’s design community, Preet began looking for a more formal way to bring people together. To help people connect both online and offline, Preet founded DesignX — Toronto’s largest UX and design community. With regular talks, webinars, and events, DesignX has quickly become a hub for the city’s most creative and enthusiastic design professionals.
“When you’re passionate about something, it shows in the final product.”
