Blue Pill, Red Pill

One designer’s struggle between the
Matrix of print and the Zion of web

My story begins at the pivotal moment when I found myself caught between the matrix of print design and a longing to seek the zion of digital expression—web design. The realization had struck me like a bolt of lightening, that in order for me to remain relevant in my field of design, I would need to leave behind the safe, comfortable space of print design and learn the coding and development of web.
