Vivian’s Answer

Hey Taylor,


As far as I know about industrial design, you don't really focus on a specific field until later in your college career. In the beginning, you do a lot of basic classes, such as, color theories (mixing colors) and basic drawing (shapes/shadows). In college, I recall my friends stay up until the AMs filling pages and pages of their sketchbooks developing their skills (https://www.pinterest.com/v2022590066/industrial-design-sketches/). In my personal experience, doing a dual major is possible, but you do sacrifice a bit of your personal life. Hey, I ended up doing it and don't regret it, so if you have the passion to pursue both, do it.


Don't stop hustlin' - Vivian

Vivian recommends the following next steps:

Research the college that offers both. Talk to the counselor about doing both fields and gauge their knowledge.
Shadow the other art field you want to pursue.
Shadow an industrial designer.

Evan’s Answer

+1 to Vivian's answer. If you know from the start that you're interested in different artistic fields, make sure to always keep that in mind when job hunting. Hopefully you can find a career that allows you to grow and gives you the chance to exercise these other interests. I am the same way! I love product design but am also interested in 3D design and illustration so I try to find ways to work in those other elements into my job every day.

Don't lose that desire to explore new interests!
