    Do what's right, honor my own values and personal ethics. That simple.

    "We're working on something exciting, like a new killer-keyboard cuz our really sucks, but we still need to release something this quarter, so let's go with this half-baked new product"

    Certainly not enough to sell my current Macbook Pro.

    Tell that to Metalab. I failed an interview with them because I presented a concept that was based on research that proved old and vintage was the right away to go Their feedback was "your interface looks too old and vintage and too much research paper in your proposal".

    They want pixel pushers I suppose.

    You guys are a little hard on Tina, it's actually pretty cool. Tina can't be compared to WordPress. WP is a CMS you install first, then add content to it. Tina is a toolkit that allows you in add editing capability to an existing site. That can be done on your server, or on Tina's cloud. Not the same!

  • Posted to For senior product designers who might not want to transition into a people-management role, what should a career trajectory look like?, Oct 15, 2019

    Oh, I know what you mean. My experience so far has been pretty negative on being mentored to make the switch from design to management. I've been a senior designer for a while now and tried the management role, but haven't had the opportunity to take a serious crack at it. Right now, I have a technical leadership role. Accountable for product decisions, vision, strategy and business side of it.

    Management's getting to me. As an individual contributor, I still feel that my involvement is limited as well as my capacity to deliver. I do want to get into management because I believe in the fact that you can scale up your impact on the product and the business through people. You do not have to push pixels yourself.

    I do want to be responsible for the solutions we push, but I do not want to be responsible for the careers growth of my reports.
