Hey Ryan,

In the interview you say that you transitioned from dev to design.

How did you go about doing this? Any advice for someone planning a similar shift?

I always had an interest in design, designing a lot of websites before and during college. My first job out of college was a Java Support Dev, for a health care company, which was soul-sucking. Troubleshooting production bugs and fixing them was not something I wanted to do.

I volunteered to build the interface of a product we were working on and never looked back.
