What are the ethics of using projects made for a company as an in-house designer on your portfolio? I remade a good portion of our website this year and I’d like to include it but I’m not sure what the thoughts are on that vs. a freelance project.

I put everything under a password and let interviewers know it’s proprietary and not to be shared. For their viewing purposes only as evidence of my work. A lot of contracts will state the work you do for them belongs to them and is not to be shared on a personal portfolio - but I think that’s BS and keeps designers from being flexible or ambitious in their careers. Not everyone has time to freelance on the side of a full-time gig to show proof of ability. In my experience if you’re interviewing for full-time gigs there has been little to no interest in my freelance work - much more emphasis placed on the work I’ve done full-time. I think folks tend to (wrongly) assume that it’s most important proof of ability. In other words, I think there is a lot wrong with the expectations in the entire process.

It’s fine. Add it to your portfolio, but be sure to list or define your contributions or just mention your role somehow.

What does your contract say? If there isn’t anything in there prohibiting it, you can use it in your portfolio (echoing the poster above — make it clear what you contributed). If your contract dictates not sharing work you can talk to them about password protecting. You have to be able to show your work to build your career. Companies (should) understand that!

Seeking some guidance. If you have a client who has told you your firm is going to lose a contract, but they really like you and want to keep you on by telling the new firm they are bringing in to hire you so you can continue on with your work on the account, do you flag for your manager? Especially if you have no interest in leaving your firm. Also, your firm has already had it alluded to them by the client they will be losing the contract. Clearly, a very awkward situation.

Our son started daycare at the beginning of the month right as I returned to work after a very extended leave. I joined a new project on my 2nd week back but haven’t been able to contribute in any meaningful way because my son keeps getting sent home with different daycare bugs and random fevers and we don’t have family nearby to watch him, so I end up having to watch him all day. I don’t know if it’s too early to feel discouraged, but I’ve been questioning my decision to return (cont’d)

The new engagement sounds like a promising one (huge client with world-wide presence, industry-leading technology, “great opportunity for my career”, long-term gig)… But I don’t feel comfortable or respected when I speak with the future PM. Is it worth it? The company pays the same whether it’s this project or another one / others. None sound terrible or alarming upfront :)
