You know those times when things just seem to work out? When things sort of coincide with eery timing? When you start to believe something “happened for a reason”? Yep. This. I’m happy to announce that as of Monday, I’ll be wielding my Wacom pen full-time as part of Houston digital agency Poetic Systems. I’ll be stepping in as designer and resident Aussie. I’ll be working on mobile applications, websites, branding, and a bunch of other pixely stuff, as well as dispelling — or solidifying — myths about life down under, and the trials and tribulations of keeping kangaroos as pets.
I’m on the hunt for a design job in Houston. While looking at positions advertised online this morning I came across a job ad with a detailed list of job requirements (a good sign), with the title “Graphic Designer / Web Developer / Design Department Mgr”, or “a bit of everything” (a bad sign). Below is the list of skills this advertiser needs. Emphasis added is mine. Web Developer: Ability to code, build websites from scratch, overhaul existing sites, build forms, manage shopping cart, develop web solutions and work with databases.
