Ask DN: Leader or Lone Wolf?

over 5 years ago from , Designer @ Sparkpunk

Question for those of you designers (in any flavor) in more senior positions at your company: do you gravitate towards roles that are:

(a)more leadership-oriented (more interaction but less hands-on)


(b)more technically specific (highly hands-on but more isolated)

I'm approaching a point in my own career where I could be building up teams around me, but am reluctant to give up actual production work. Curious to hear what y'all have learned.
