Hello! I’m making the transition from teaching to design and production which I’ve been doing along the way but now am pursuing earnestly. I have working front end knowledge and a couple Wordpress projects under my belt. My passion is design and video pro and I’d love to combine the two. My question is regarding how necessary it is going to a bootcamp or other route to get into the industry. I have a portfolio that I’m building now and would love to hear your feedback and experience. Thank you!

I’m a creative in Europe. My creative output has been consistent and I have been lucky enough to have won a bunch of awards at the big shows. All is well. But somehow I keep on feeling the urge to relocate to the USA to work on a bigger scale, and to feel the thrill of a new challenge. I have some opportunities over there, actually. Are there any Europeans working in the USA right now? In which way is it different? Do you make less stuff? Which cities are recommended? Any advice would be great.

Chicago-based. Have a Google offer for L4 UX Researcher (base 153 / bonus 15% / RSUs 369 / sign on 30). Y1 TC is ~300 excluding the sign on. RSUs are frontloaded so TC over 4 years would be more like ~270. Thoughts? Is that fair?

Desperately searching for a graphic design or UI UX role that is remote. I studied design and have had multiple positions in graphic design roles, I am miserable at my current position that expects me to do all the marketing, photography, graphic design, and comms at very low pay.

I have had over a year of experience with figma and 2 years of professional experience with Adobe suite, 5 if you count my education.

Any and all suggestions, referrals, and feedback would be appreciated.

I'm starting a new job at a technology firm as a full-time Senior Product Designer, and it will be my first job within a clientbased environment.
