I can see that many designers get stuck in roles or positions where they can’t advance and they are just stuck making marketing materials instead of growing in any way, but sometimes people get lured in with awesome work environments and cool work cultures.
What I learned in my first 4 years as a Designer — And how I’m transitioning into Web/UI
BJ Viehl

Hey BJ, I’m currently making a transition into UI/UX design and have found myself in this exact position for the last few years. It took these past couple of months to realize that the work I was designing (marketing/advertising) didn’t feel impactful. Thanks for writing such a open post about your experience. Wishing you the best on your journey!
