What Happens when Professional and Personal Projects Collide?
Awesome things happen! This is why designers need to run their own personal projects, where they are their own clients.
This nice little graphic was created by Ji Lee, the creative director at Facebook. He famously became creative director at his previous employer, Google, through his awesome range of personal projects.
I can attest to this phenomenon. This website, and all the personal projects on it such as my Spaces for Ideas: Expandable Sketchbook, has been a huge positive influence in my own professional career in Design.
