The most frustrating projects I’ve ever been involved with have been the internal projects. That website for Tender? Oh, the arguments.
Working on a personal site is just as irritating, but the arguments are just with myself.
Besides the usual ennui and self-diversion around actually designing anything, I’ve been focusing my time on finding a way to write about what I do at eBay. My job title might be “Senior Product Manager” but the fact is my actual responsibilities have been Designer, PM, Developer, Scrum Master, and probably a few others through the last 4 years. Much of the design work is not the most visually exciting. And how, exactly, do you put ‘helped build a new product team’ in an otherwise traditional design portfolio.
