Hello, fellow creative! 

This month’s newsletter won’t be too long.

I should probably alternate between short and long Hirlevels anyways. But sometimes I just sit down, and even though I thought I had not much to say, I could quickly fill 3-4 pages, and Hirlevel becomes an essay.

I have two exciting news 

#1 News — I’m publishing a book in April…

…and, I decided to give it away for FREE 🙌  

Tentative title: Things I wish I knew before starting in UX design - things you want to know too. You don’t want to miss out on this one…there’s nothing to lose. Sign up by filling out the form: https://forms.gle/3H76Wxzh393xfX72A

Already 110 people are on the waitlist. Amazing, as well as scary. 

I couldn’t believe it when I saw the numbers. 

My goal with the book is to help designers (aspiring or more seasoned) navigate within the tech field as UX/product designers. 

#2 News — I’m moving to Canada! 🇨🇦

In a few months.

Living in Canada has been my lifelong dream. Now, it’s so close. I got my visa just about a month ago. I can’t wait for this new experience. There are so many things to sort out here in New Zealand, because I’m not planning to come back anytime soon.

Design on YouTube

By the way, if you haven’t tried Twitter yet, give it a go. It’s my favourite social channel, where you can engage with so many different people that you wouldn’t otherwise.

As always, if there's anything you'd like to see me cover in future newsletters, don't hesitate to let me know. You can always message me. I read all of my emails and messages, and I reply to them myself.

I'd love to hear from you!

Thanks for reading. See you in April.
