  • Posted to Is it better for designers to be generalists or specialists?, Aug 19, 2017

    I think you should only concern yourself with being a specialist if a specialization emerges that you're passionate about.

  • Posted to Why would you want to work remote as a designer?, Jun 08, 2017

    I completely agree with your take on the benefits of working in person. Hands down, its more productive in every way.

    I've been working as a designer for almost 10 years now. I've worked for a few agencies, both big and small, and its starting to grind me down a bit. With all the amazing-ness of collaboration comes the interpersonal issues relating to sustaining relationships. And maybe I'm more focused on that now because I've been working at Pivotal Labs, which is all design pairing, all the time.

    I have to say, the flexibility of working remote is extremely attractive. It kind of has this magical allure of a different lifestyle.. but I haven't done it for more than a few months at a time in my career, so I can't comment on how it really adds up.

    Hope the perspective helps!
