With all the negative baggage that came with my tenure at PS, there is so much positive to out weight it. Everyone around me was so talented & has grown to be very close friends. Almost everyone younger at some point in their twenties. Though we may have lacked guidance from someone with the experience we all felt very comfortable around one another. At least from my perspective, when my immediate team would brainstorm or come time to create with one another it was very open thoughts and ideas because their little worry of judgment and we were excited to work with one another.
Also before the company started its downwards times there were some great parties & I met my girlfriend of fours years now there!
But as you can tell I saw the position would be coming to an end at some point so during my last 4 months there I’d say I started to slowly begin to update my resume & portfolio so when the time came I was ready to start looking.
I applied and interviewed at a handful of places and now I am the Senior Designer at Rogue Fitness. Everything is awesome so far! My team is a really awesome group of people & I get to work on an array of multiple types of projects which is great for me. I get burnt out working on the same things week in and week out(Marketing emails, never again.) I mean just in these past 6 months I've worked on the web page layout, product packaging, branding projects, wayfinding, and an array of print projects just to scrape the surface. I’m still learning daily about the products & brand which is great. Also who knew how much went into workout equipment(not me). I’ve already got to work on some awesome projects. Here’s the newest build board I created with the team. Defiantly the largest print item I’ve ever worked on.
