    We had an agency back in the day - Vuzum. One of the in-house projects we were building was https://widgetic.com. In November 2016, after 8 years, we closed down the shop and a selected few continued to work on the startup which is profitable. ;-)

    Wait, before you're a product designer, you're a user. A user of many products. More products than you design actually, and for sure a user of major products you'll never design for.

    So if you feel compelled to act, stop using any tech product that started in / got funded by / has ant stakeholders in the Bay Area.

    Chance is not a good business strategy. That's why so many startups fail to reach product market fit. The way you're doing it basically is throwing bricks on a land field and hoping to build a house. Would that ever work?

    I skimmed through the other comments and I think people confuse product work (focused on product discovery) and agency work (focused mostly on delivery). Don't fall in that trap.

    This topic is not something to debate on: you either have a process and succeed, or you don't. My only piece of advice is to look into these things right now. Also drop Photoshop - but I guess it's telling why you use it. :P

    Begin with a few videos on youtube. Then dive deep.

    In Sketch there's Launchpad that allows you to publish a page instantly and any widgets within will be interactive on the published html page.

    Wondering if this will be possible with Framer, considering they now open-up the store to components and these can be interactive. What's missing is the ability to publish these designs to pages that would use those interactive elements in them.

    Switch careers - become a Product Manager, or to a lesser extent a Product Designer.
