What do you want to be when you grow up – a cloud.

Some inspiration:

Well, I don’t want to be a cloud.Or maybe I do. I want to be a cloud of words that keeps on growing and expanding everyday learning a new word. Yes, a massive fat cloud!

Hmmm… the quest of finding a career as a not-so-recent-anymore-in-september-will-be-one-year MA Digital Arts graduate and I am heading towards the digital sector and the web:

Visual communication, art direction. Designing systems or interfaces to help users achieve goals. Graphic design, interface design, user experience design, typography, illustration, photography, artwork. Creative and technical techniques for crafting great interfaces. Developing an appropriate look and feel. How web users respond to design. Identity systems and brand development. Visual styles, influences, and trends.

This bit was taken from A List Apart (web design magazine suprasumo) and they are the tags that relate to the field of Design under web design. The other topics are Content, Code, Culture, Process, Mobile and User Science (really?). The idea is to pin down what it is that will define my profession, but as I was listening the other day in a boagworld podcast, the terminology and the role title is very confusing in the web arena.
