Daily Iteration aims to help educate college-age designers going into the workforce about how to work in a way that is conscious of their physical health.
Design is an industry heavily intertwined with computers, designers sit at desks, couches or beds, for some now, as a result of COVID-19. Designers like any other job have health risks they’re more at risk of as a result of the tasks they do. In order to overcome these health risks, designers have to be knowledgeable and proactive in the way they work.
Daily Iteration aims to help educate college designers going into the workforce about how to work in a way conscious of their physical health. Daily Iteration secondarily aims to spread the importance of physical wellbeing to designers and design houses everywhere. Designers coming out of school making the transition to full-time work are not equipped with how to balance a full-time work schedule. If they can be equipped with these skills then healthy habits can be formed that will set them up for a long and healthy design career.
I felt that a website along with a care package for designers at their first jobs was the output that made the most sense. New hires would get a care package of healthy things and a link to the site where they could quickly learn about ways to stay healthy as they entered the working world.
I researched what senior designers had to say about having a healthy and long-lasting design career, and all of the possible health risks that designers are put up against with possible solutions to each problem.
