Over the past few months I’ve been networking with past colleagues and making new acquaintances to see if anyone knows of any job openings. Putting the word out there led to me meeting my newest mentor. This ambitious individual is full of entrepreneurial ideas, and since the beginning of June he’s been giving me mini-projects to help me gain new experiences while adding pieces to my portfolio. He also got me in touch with another designer (the very talented Dara Ryan) down in Baltimore – so that we could share our past design experiences and work on these projects together.
These projects include: 2 extensive logo designs, developing visual concepts for a brand identity, creating wireframes using Mockflow (a great FREE resource), and learning about Google Analytics. I am excited to add new pieces to my portfolio and to be gaining all of this experience (all while continuing my job search).
