Most designers don’t dream about working on one brand, one website, and one UI. They crave variety. That’s why I joined an agency right out of school and didn’t think twice about going into product design. Nobody really did; agencies were where all the cool kids were. Designers could breath life into so many different (and sometimes sad) corners of the internet at an agency. They could work on Nike one day and BMW the next. Exposed brick, thick-rimmed glasses, and a portfolio full of big brands: That was the dream.
