👋🏼 I’m a senior art director/designer working in the advertising agency. I would like to make a transition to the tech world in the similar capacity. I worked across traditional (branding, print, TV) and digital (promo, e-commerce, apps) projects in auto, alcohol, CPG, pharma, hospitality industries. While my portfolio is getting great feedback in the ad agency world (design skills and conceptual thinking), it’s not quit strong to compete against portfolios of the UI/product designers with case studies of comprehensive design system for products like Spotify/Dropbox/etc. I’m curious if my agency backroad (working on multiple brands, quick turnaround times, conceptual thinking) gives me an upper hand or is frowned upon in the tech world? Thanks!
If you are good looking you will have great opportunities.
