Not that I am planning to relocate anytime soon but wanted to have your thoughts on which country you think is a safer option to relocate to?

Having trouble picking work to present as case studies in my portfolio.

Problem I’m having is that the company I’ve worked at has pivoted so many times, and we have yet to ship our product till later this year or so. While I can say that the designs I’ve implemented have shown to have good usability in user tests, I can’t really say it’s yielded tangible improvement for our users or product, since we have no live users atm.

Any advice on how I can best frame/pick case studies?
