I had to get good at working in PowerPoint and Word.. 🤦🏻‍♀️ lots of presentation cleanups and templates. Other than that mostly marketing designs (handout collateral, social media, etc)


Copy/paste hahah

No, but for real, mostly I work on paid social and display ads, so a lot of my day to day is setting up new files and mixing up the photography assets we have into new configurations to test. Mostly Photoshop/After Effects. Since we’re starting to get into the holiday season, I also get to come up with a bunch of looks and options for promo creative that doesn’t suck.

Looking for recommendations: off-road/4x4 paths near the perimeter.

So my current situation: living ITP but recently bought a 4x4 Taco and want to make sure I maintain the system by running it on some dirt. Total beginner to off-road, not looking for anything technical (don’t have recovery equipment yet), so mainly just looking for an unpaved area I can run the 4x4 for a bit. I understand i’ll probably have to venture a bit OTP but any recommendations are welcomed! TIA

If market rate is 25 - 30% more than I’m currently getting paid, when I go to have a conversation with my boss about a market adjustment, what’s a reasonable expectation for a salary increase (as a high performer that they definitely want to retain)? Should I be disappointed if they don’t offer to bring me up the full amount immediately, rather over the course of 2 to 3 years? I would assume a normal merit raise (5-8%) would still be included each year in addition to the market adjustment.

I finished my UX certification from OCAD university Toronto.
They did teach me a lot of UX.
But Very little UI design.
I'm a graphic designer with 8 years of agency and client side experience. I can catch up with figma but of course I won't have much experience.

However I'm not sure where do I fit since I'm planning to make a switch from graphic design to somewhere between UX and marketing.
