Really nice! One nit-pick: it should be
Clients and not
dang beat me to it! was going to post that
A 40-50 page portfolio will never be read. Sorry to say. You need to prune that significantly.
I take a three-prong approach to my online presence:
All serve there own purpose, but are straightforward and pretty quick/easy to read
Ours is used for our product and development teams to help them create the components we use on the website. Marketing and sales also benefit because they have complete access to our branding guidelines for physical marketing materials, as well as non-devs who need to dabble in HTML for a one-off landing page or digital marketing material. I would highly recommend it to any organization that has a robust set of components for their brand.
A job you shouldn't apply for because they spelled "Principal" wrong.
Principal anything are generally only at larger companies/agencies, and represent the highest-level individual contributors to a firm. They are the most senior (6-10+ yrs experience) and either lead to architect roles or management.
This is a great step in the right direction for making driving safer with mobile devices. However there is one serious flaw in their reasoning - they asserted that 90% of cars have Bluetooth devices in them. That is a gross misinterpretation of the title of the article that they linked to - that said 90% of new cars will have Bluetooth capabilities in them...in 2016. So realistically, you're looking at far less than 90% of cars could implement this strategy immediately, which severely limits the efficacy of Bluetooth-enabled "Car Mode."
Chiefly the issue is that these titles are somewhat useless - only because there is no "standard" right now, so while it can be beneficial to your own organization, it won't necessarily help you source candidates.
Secondly, I'd just combine Analyst and Engineer. If the only difference is using AXURE vs HTML/CSS, why bother having both when the majority of responsibilities are the same?
I'd hire for Engineer (UX/Frontend) and Designer. Keep things simple, and that also increases your hiring range because you aren't pigeonholing yourself to titles that professionals who may fit the mold, but don't necessarily associate with the title.
