There are many aspects that go into building a successful career in design, whether you’re focused on experience design, graphic design, or one of the many facets of digital design today. Establishing and maintaining a personal brand, an identity that you’re known for and knowledgeable in, can help to open opportunities for you, and focus your work. Commonly the portfolio is a hot button topic when it comes to job searches and career growth, but in the session we’ll explore other important topics important to fueling your career, and look at how to design a cohesive brand identity across many platforms, beyond just mastering the portfolio.
