Can't help you with travel fatigue as I enjoy it, but for the job stress I just step back and do some of my own stuff (music, art, etc.). We can't let ourselves care too much (there's always more work to do) so draw the line in your day/week and discard your job past that line to recharge

Hi fishies 🐠 I’m an Art Director that’s trying to transition over to UX Design. I have experience building websites and some previous freelance work doing some UI/UX. What’s the best route to transition over and would I need to apply for entry level roles? Does an AD role with a UI/UX focus even exist? I enjoy the thinking of UX design and am comfortable designing interfaces but I’m mostly unsure of the process of working with an UX team. Would love to hear your thoughts!
