Can we say that AKQA is a design-driven company (or is it more a consultancy company with design teams in it)?

How would you define it? 🙃

Help me out here. I can’t wrap my mind around the logic of releasing your Super Bowl spot online early. Like weeks early.

I get the need to hit different targets.
I get that clients want metrics ASAP.
I get that “generating buzz” is the name of the game.

But why the order of: release full spot online -> hope for traction/buzz -> spend millions run it during SB -> hope 2.0?

Why not: tease as needed -> drop SB spot -> follow up buzz/chatter tactics?

So I've heard from a bunch of people that working as a Product Designer at a FAANG company isn't as glamourous as people make it out to be.

Is there any truth to this? Or is it just bitter people who didn't get hired?

I've heard the work life balance is tough, and that people usually leave after less than 1.5 years because the churn is crazy.

Is it worth going for FAANG companies or nah?

I currently lead a team of UX consultants working at an enterprise client. Recently, the consulting company got another enterprise client asking for a single UX resource and I am seriously considering it to diversify my experience. My concern is because this is a one UX resource request, leaving my current leadership position to become an Agile team feeding, UI-producing consultant. What are the questions you ask the client before you switch to another billable project to mitigate such risks?


I'm currently in the process of looking for new work. I've scaled it to be around 6-8 months before I can leave. I have so many projects on me and never enough coverage to even take a weeks pto. I feel immense guilt if I put in two weeks and call it quits. Yet I have people booking me months in advance for work, without consideration if I'm doing okay. My pto is always maxed out and I'm burned out. I love the work that I do just not my company's treatment of its employees.
