My advice to you (coming from a traditional agency background now working in product / copy design) is read and learn about UX design and UI design. A brand designer recently joined our team and he’s awesome and talented and creative but he can’t work on certain projects which has created some resentment. He’s specialized in his traditional area, but that doesn’t really help a whole team when others need help.

You stand a chance if you work on your own to build our tour skill set

I’m in a same sex relationship. My partner’s family couldn’t be more welcoming, accepting, and loving. I know I should be insanely grateful for this - and I am.

They’re not super educated, some have very different political views, and part of my can’t imagine being around them all the time in the future with kids, etc. We live quite close to them so see them often. Am I a total jerk?
