"We send invites out once a week"
What a waste of my time.
I launched mine a week or so ago.
Excuse me, I'll have you know this is a very serious question. Everyone knows it's a never-ending debate whether designers should code, and more recently whether they should have a portfolio. Now tell me, if one should have a portfolio, should one code it? I look forward to your well thought out and detailed response.
Should designers code their own portfolios?
Requires a backend?
It's just static?
How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
I've tried everything. I always go back to Monaco.
Now now, Victor, remember, giving is the reason for living.
Also, be bold, be present, remember that work is not worth, travel often and trust your gut. Meaning > money, but remember you also need that money to travel often. Oh, and busyness ≠ productivity. So be productive, but not busy, but busy enough to travel often. But just don't forget that meaning is more important.
Thanks man, I appreciate it. Over the past few years I focussed a lot on development, but back in November last year I wanted to make a full comeback to design, and honestly, I wasn't a fan of a lot of my old work. I guess a lot of us are guilty of this, too. We look up to others' work and find fault in our own. A lot of it felt dated and I wanted a fresh start.
In hindsight, I partially regret it, many clients have asked to see more work and I don't have it, but thankfully it didn't hold me back.
Be nice. Or else.
